ANNUAL DINNER MEETING: By popular request, the Dinner Meeting will be held on Saturday, May 5th. Dinner will be served at 7:00 p.m. at the Ship Inn (located in the cellar of the Marine Museum of Upper Canada) and the bar will be open earlier for those who might enjoy a pre-dinner restorative. Our speaker will be Mr. Alan Howard whose subject will be "All Aboard For Niagara: Recollections of Summer Days in the Ships that Sailed from Toronto". This promises to be a very special evening.
The capacity of the Ship Inn is limited and those wishing to attend should immediately address Mr. James M. Kidd, 83 Humberview Road, Toronto, Ontario, M6S 1W9, enclosing the necessary remittance. The cost will be $10.75 per person (no change from last year) and guests will be welcomed. Please reserve your tickets as soon as possible.
Our thanks are due to Dr. Gordon Shaw for his most interesting address at the February meeting. He gave us a graphic description of what has happened to the Canadian lake fleet since the opening of the Seaway.
In the New Member Department, a hearty welcome goes out to Rob. Hartley of St. Catharines, to Rick Jackson of Toronto, to Phillip Dewsnap of Toronto, to W. George Williams of Cote St. Luc, Quebec, and to Glenn G. Warner of Thunder Bay.
