Pleins feux sur la promotion de 1970

Article de Jennifer Jordan, la Fondation des CMR Coordonnatrice de la collecte de fonds et Assistante à la rédaction d’e-Veritas

Quelques membres de la promotion de 1970 ont bravé la neige le samedi 18 janvier pour assister à la 84e partie de hockey annuelle opposant West Point et le CMR et participer à la remise de la plaque portant le nom des gagnants de la première Bataille annuelle des promotions. La promotion de 1970 s’est taillé une place sur le Mur de la renommée sportive en recueillant plus de 100 000 $ au profit du fonds de dotation qui finance les activités sportives au CMR. 

8417 David Green, qui a l’étoffe d’un vrai champion, a permis à sa promotion de remporter la bataille grâce à un très généreux don individuel.

    Jennifer – the class of 70 joined at all three CMCs and graduated at all 3 CMCs. Where they started in 70 is not a firm indicator of where they graduated and what year. I know that RRMC and CMR are having Old Brigade weekends in Victoria and St Jean. Some of us never attended Kingston. – Steve

    Hi Steven,
    Thank you for your note above. Yes our alumni represents all of the Military Colleges, and your support to the RMC Foundation funds current projects for both the Royal Military College, and the Royal Military College Saint-Jean. Your class (CMR 1975) also has a fund with us the “CMR Saint-Jean Entry Class of 1970-1975” which is fundraising for your OB entry gift this year. The donations collected from your classmates for that fund were also included in the Battle of the Classes Challenge total.
    Jennifer
