Initial Meeting for the Ontario TCD Alumni Report

As a result of a notice published in Trinity Today, several graduates contacted John Payne and a get together was arranged on Friday, December 6th at the Queen's Head in Oakville. There were eight in attendance - Hilary Selby, Doug Saunders, Bill McConnell, Richard O'Connor, Gopala Gowda, John Cary, Kevin Harraher, and John Payne.

In order to be able to recognize one another, graduate ties were suggested for the men. In fact most wore scarves instead. After introductions, reminiscing etc. a meal was ordered and discussion turned as to how to move things forward and in what form.

It was agreed that a meeting should be organized in the new year and that a mailout would be required. This note would inform alumni of our existence, the date and coordinates of the next meeting and, most importantly, ask for e-mail addresses so that communications could be faster and more effective. At the next meeting further consideration would be given to informal, yet regular, meetings and possibly an annual formal affair, such as a dinner with a speaker.
