Our February meeting was a success, thanks to John Lang who presented four advertising films, some no longer current, dealing with major passenger vessels. They were well received by our members who seemed unable to divert their attention from some of the pictures on the screen!
The Annual Dinner Meeting will be held Friday, May 5th. Please note that although we had hoped to meet on the Saturday, a change has been necessitated by the restaurant's schedule. Dinner will be served at 7:00 p.m. at the Ship Inn (located in the cellar of the Museum) and the bar will open earlier for those who might enjoy a pre-dinner restorative. Speaker will be Mr. Daniel C. McCormick of Massena, New York, whose subject will be "The St. Lawrence in Transition - Twenty-Five Years of Change".
The capacity of the Ship Inn is limited and we must receive your reservation, accompanied by payment, by the date of the April meeting. The cost will be $10.75 per person (no change from last year) and guests will be welcome. All those wishing to attend should immediately notify Mr. James M. Kidd, 83 Humberview Road, Toronto, Ontario, M6S 1W9, enclosing the necessary remittance.
In the New Member Department, a hearty welcome goes out to Kenneth Cooper of Kingston, to Ronald H. Taylor of Orillia, to Kenneth E. Thro of Hay-ward, Wisconsin, to Capt. Ted Hanifan of Windsor, to Paul R. Belanger of the Canadian Soo, and to Ron Konkol of Thunder Bay.
