Our November meeting was a film night and was very well received by all present. Our Program Chairman, Gordon Turner, managed to dig up three very interesting documentary films on containerization and various ports and also managed to get his hands on a portion of the film "A Night To Remember", the movie about the sinking of TITANIC. Gordon's efforts were much appreciated.
By the way, Gordon is always looking for suggestions for programs so that he may plan his schedule well in advance. He would appreciate hearing any suggestions and particularly would like to hear from anyone who might care to address one of our meetings.
The Holiday Season will soon be upon us, and as we will not have another chance to speak to you through these pages between now and the end of the year, we would like to take this opportunity to wish to each of you and yours a very Merry Christmas and all happiness in the New Year.
In the New Member Department, a hearty welcome goes out to Capt. Harold Barklem, one of the skippers of the Toronto Island ferries. We now have the honour of having four of the island ferry captains as members of the Toronto Marine Historical Society.
