CLASS OF 1972
Guess what, it’s Reunion time again. It’s forty years since we graduated and our next reunion is just around the corner.
In 2012, Ex-Cadet Weekend is the weekend of September 28-30. In addition to the usual Ex-Cadet weekend events, the following class events are planned: Friday, Sept 28 – Golf at the Garrison Club and ‘Meet and Greet’ at the Fort Frontenac Officers’ Mess, and Sat, Sep 29 – Class Dinner/Dance at the Harbour Front Restaurant, Portsmouth Harbour. Estimated costs for these events are $40 for 18 holes of golf, $25/person for the ‘Meet and Greet’ and $65/person for the ‘Dinner/Dance’.
Rick Marsden, Ken Lee, Steve Davis and Lawrence McDonough have been ‘busy beavers’. They’ve been planning, making reservations, thinking about a Class gift, and arranging accommodations.
With respect to accommodations, 20 traditional rooms with 2 queen beds have been reserved at the Ambassador Inn (http://ambassador1-px.rtrk.com/home.html) , and 10 rooms at the Donald Gordon Conference Centre (http://business.queensu.ca/dgcc/index.php) under RMC Class of 72 Reunion. Other hotels (e.g., the Holiday Inn, the Raddison Harbourfront, Marriott Residence Inn, and the Sheraton Four Points) in the area offer reunion weekend specials but are typically more expensive than the places we’ve booked. The rates at the Ambassador $130.00/room/night plus tax if guests stay 3 nights starting Thursday, $145.00/room/night plus tax if guests stay 2 nights starting Friday and $155.00/room plus tax if guests stay Saturday only. The rates at the Donald Gordon Conference Centre are $125/night plus tax single occupancy and $155/night plus tax double occupancy. The block bookings expire 27 August. Book early!
Rick Marsden has agreed to manage the finances for the ‘Meet and Greet’ and the Class Dinner/Dance. To this end, he has opened an account at the Bank of Nova Scotia – “RMC Class of 72 Reunion Fund”. Please make out cheques for the Meet and Greet ($25/person) and the Class Dinner ($65/person) to this account and forward them to:
Dr. R Marsden
1249 Humberside Dr.
Please send your cheques to Rick as soon as possible so the Ken Lee and he will have the cash they need to make the required down payments for the venues, food and DJ.
Following up on the good work that Jean-Guy Nadeau did in anticipation of the 2007 Reunion, we are making another ‘special’ effort to track down lost classmates. A complete list of the Class of 72 and the current mailing list is posted on the class website – If you have any changes, please email them to [email protected], call me at 1-613-584-4418.
As you can see, the Class website is out of date. I plan to update it over the next couple of months. Also, the Class has a Facebook presence, “RMC – Class of 72 – Info Exchange”. 37 members of our Class are linked to it, and I post Class related information there. Several members of the Class also use LinkedIn. If you’d link to be added to the Facebook group or connected in LinkedIn, please let me know.
To mark the 40th Year after Graduation, it is customary for a class to present a substantial gift to RMC. Contributions are tax deductible! In anticipation of the 40th, please consider making a contribution to the Class fund. Donations can be made on-line through the RMC Foundation website – http://www.rmcclubfoundation.ca, or using the forms posted on the site. If you’re interested in seeing what others have donated, check out the Lifetime Giving Circles linked to the Donor Recognitions Programs page – http://www.rmcclubfoundation.ca/OurDonors/DonorRecognitionPrograms/tabid/91/language/en-US/Default.aspx
If you have any preferences/special requests, please email them to me as soon as possible.
I look forward to hearing from you and catching up with you at the 40th.
