2015 PERI Reunion – Big Success

By: WJO

Last week – 19 – 22 Aug, Kingston played host to a national reunion of former members of the Physical Fitness & Recreation Branch (PERIs / PEROs).

Close to 200 which included family & friends attended a number of very well planed events – including golf, sightseeing and shopping, boat cruise, special dinners, and a farewell breakfast. The main venue was The Kingston Italo- Canadian Club.

Spotted on the attendee list were a number of former PERIs / PEROs who at one time ‘served’ at one – or more – of the three military colleges.

These included:

Terry Armishaw, Barney Barnard, Pamela Barrett, Dick Beaune, Brendan Bennett, Ray Bootland, Regis Bouchard, Steve Brick, Dick Carmichael, Charles “Cookie’ Collicut,

Randy Cousineau, Al Ettinger, Frank Fazio, Jim Gebhardt, Jocelyn Girard, Harry Guitard, Roy Hillier, Dave Honsinger, Wilf Johnston, Roy Kemp,

Gerry LeBlanc, Daniel Lefebvre, Harry MacDonald, Ken MacDonald, Louise Maziarski,Tom MacKay, Jack McBride, Sonny McLean, Earle Morris, Bill Oliver,

Garry Plant, Jean-Guy Proulx, Roy Reid, Brian Richardson, Mike Rowat, Jack Slade, Ken Straight, Art Stevenson.

We had the opportunity to attend a few of the events. From personal observation and feedback from many of the out-of-town visitors the reunion was a smashing success.

Hats off to the organizers.
