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 all space may be filled by the time you read this message. Anyone wishing to attend who has not yet reserved should immediately address Mr. James M. Kidd, 83 Humberview Road, Toronto, Ontario, M6S 1W9, enclosing the necessary remittance. The cost is $10.75 per person (no change from last year) and guests will be most welcome.
Our thanks go to Capt. John Leonard for his most interesting address to the March meeting. All present enjoyed his reminiscences and we look forward to hearing Part Two of the programme at a future date.
