Greetings & a Happy Easter to all

Just over 3 weeks to our luncheon. From the initial response, we should have another great turn-out.

It will be another fun time for sure. Each year is different, always great, and as I always say "you have to be there".

Lunch - fruit punch - soup or salad, veggies, choice of chicken or salmon, dessert & coffee.

If a special lunch is desired - just let me know. Cost is $ 45.00, which includes taxes & tip. There will also be a cash bar.

The Donalda Club would like to have a count of the choices by May 8.

So even though you may have told me you plan to attend already, please let me know your choice for the main course.

You should also know, that even if you decide to join us at the very last minute, the Donalda Club will not let you go away hungry.

Last year the meals were terrific. We will have a list of those planning to attend on the website, updated often

I am really happy that we will have our band back again this year. They were missed by all: Bob Clegg, Bruce Manning, John Dowson, Michael ‘Keyes’ Dowson, Paul Hiscox ,Russ Strathdee, Sonny Milne.

We will again have a lucky draw for a pair of great tickets to a Blue Jays game.

Several have sent their regrets that they will be unable to join us this year, mostly because they will be away travelling at that time.

Many of them have asked me to pass on their best wishes to everyone & most are planning to join us next year.

I haven't heard from Sue. From what I can see from her blog she may be back for the luncheon. http://www.sueandjohnairstreaming.blogspot.ca/

As Sue keeps our Master List, I have done my best to contact everyone from the last list. I have not been able to contact many that have changed their email or mailing address.

I think most people should know by now that the reunion is always held on the second Tuesday in May.

Please let any schoolmates, that you can contact, know of the luncheon.

Al Connolly still plans to give us a talk about his philosophy - art - sculpture. He will bring pictures of some of his work. I'm sure we will find it most interesting.

Hopefully Sue will have stories & pictures from her wonderful trip around North America.

I received a wonderful email from Joanne 'Rudd". She has recently re-married and she and her husband are (as she says) working on their Bucket List. Sounds very happy - still living in California. She hopes to join us in the next year or two.

Russ is part of a musical show - Bacharach to the Beattles in Barrie on May 3, check his OMA Blog for more information.

Some ver sad news - Doug Massey recently passed away.
