Class Notes & More…

We are always on the lookout for ex-Cadets to add to our Class Notes section. If you are or if you know of an Ex Cadet with something interesting going on, we want to hear about it! Whether it’s career related or more related to personal/family life, we would like to know what’s going on with you and / or them.

Just send a short write up, and, if you want, a recent JPEG appropriate photo, to: [email protected].

Curling has been a passion throughout the life of 7301 Earle Morris, Class of ’67, and he can’t seem to put it on the back burner! He is presently a high performance curling coach working with two elite level teams. He will coach the Ottawa -based Rachel Homan women’s team in the upcoming Ontario Ladies Championships in Kitchener Waterloo from Jan 21-27. If they are successful, the team will represent Ontario in the Canadian Ladies Curling Championships in the K-Rock Centre in Kingston Feb 16-24 Feb 2013. Morris also is the coach of the 2012 US National Mens Champions.

When not in a curling rink – Earle and his wife Maureen are enjoying retirement in Ottawa, which includes travel, cottaging and 3 grandchildren who arrived by posting this past summer. Earle’s daughter 21339 Marie Lubiniecki (nee Morris), Class of ’98, and her husband 21669 Mark Lubiniecki, Class of ’00 – both RMC grads – are the proud parents!

13122 WJ (Bill) Kelly, Class of ’81, retired from his public service position as Director General Aerospace Equipment Program Management having completed over 35 years of combined CF and DND service.

Bill and his wife Beth plan to remain in Ottawa. After taking a few months off, he expects to begin consulting work in the defence and security sectors.

In early January the former Redmen goalie had the pleasure of playing in an over 50 hockey tournament in Stittsville with a number of classmates and RMC grads. 12871 Rob Thorneycroft flew in from Calgary, 13106 Kim Fitzsimmons travelled from Trenton, 13186 Les Waldron came in from Kingston, and 13666 Steve Noonan, 13103 Jim Dziarski, 13150 Rob Morrow and Bill made up the Ottawa contingent. 13140 Jo Jo Mansfield worked the door and provided comic relief (beyond what was being provided on the ice).

Game results are not available from the tourney, but lots of reminiscing occurred in the pub after the games.

13397 Michel Duhaime, Class of ’83, has been practicing as a Registered Acupuncturist since 2001. Currently, his focus is on exploring chronic pain and illness as windows into the dissociation of mind and body. By combining the tools of traditional Chinese medicine, Psychology of Vision, Ki Aikido, Energy Psychology, Esoteric acupuncture, Course in Miracles, and transformational medicine, it is possible to access the hidden world of the subconscious and, occasionally, that of the unconscious mind, in order to gain insight into one’s life and begin the healing journey.

He is also quite enthusiastic to participate in the health retreats offered by Fresh Start on Vancouver Island where he has been successful in assisting participants moving through emotional blocks during their 5, 9, or 14 day cleansing programs.
