Our March meeting was a tremendous success thanks to the efforts of John H.Bascom and "Scotty" McCannell who presented a program illustrated with photos from the collection of the late Capt. James McCannell. The old lantern slides include some very rare shots of early Georgian Bay steamers and the program was well received by those present. We were pleased to see so many of our out-of-town members in attendance despite the fact that Toronto was caught in the grip of the worst snowstorm of the winter.

By the time you read this, the Dinner Meeting will have come and gone. We will have a full report in our next issue but meantime we are pleased to say that the meeting is a complete sell-out. We sincerely thank our members for their support of this event.

Remember that the May meeting will be our last meeting of the 1974-75 season. We will resume our meetings in October following the summer holiday period. Don't miss the May affair - should be a winner.

In the New Member Department, a hearty welcome goes out to Jim Morris Jr. of Detroit and to James H. Ramay of Centre Line, Michigan.
