Our December meeting featured Mr. Gordon Champion who presented an illustrated talk on the subject of the rebuilding of TRILLIUM. In addition, Alan Howard recounted the details of the career of the vessel prior to her rebirth. Gordon's enthusiasm for the reconstruction job was evident throughout his address and he managed to keep most of those present in stitches all evening with his stories of the strange things that happened while the steamer was taking shape. We sincerely thank Gordon for coming to our meeting to share his experiences on TRILLIUM with us. It was a shame that the weatherman proved to be unco-operative again, thus preventing many of our out-of-town members from attending. It never fails; every time we have a super-terrific programme planned, it snows buckets! Must be something about the way we're living....

For those of you who may be interested in obtaining back issues of this newsletter, we would suggest that you contact us right away. Our supplies of many numbers are dwindling rapidly and quite a few are now completely out of stock. We have had to raise the price per issue to $1.00 to keep pace with postage costs but our back issues are well worth the price.

In the New Member Department, a hearty welcome goes out to Laurence M. Scott of Brockville and to Capt. Reginald Belcher of Victoria Harbour, Ontario.
