The March meeting featured an evening of steamboating on the lower Mississippi River with Bill Wilson and Ye Ed. We trust that those present enjoyed the program as much as we enjoyed presenting it.

THE ANNUAL DINNER MEETING will be held at the Ship Inn, in the cellar of the Museum, on Saturday, May 2nd. Dinner will be served at 7:00 p.m. and the bar will be open from 6:00 for those who might enjoy a pre-dinner restorative. Our speaker, Lorne Joyce, will present some of the historic Bay of Quinte material from the collection of our late member Willis Metcalfe, courtesy of Mrs. Metcalfe. This should be a most enjoyable evening, and those who have heard Lorne Joyce address our Society in the past will have an indication of the spellbinding nature of his excursions into Lake Ontario's past. Cost will be $12.75 per person and guests will be welcome. Space is limited and most of the tickets have already been reserved, but if you wish to attend and have not yet sent your remittance, please contact our Chief Purser, James M. Kidd, 83 Humberview Road, Toronto, Ontario, M6S 1W9, as soon as possible. Tickets will be held at the door for those who have already reserved.

In the New Member Department, a hearty welcome goes out to Christopher W. Rottiers of Birch Run, Michigan, and to Vaughn E. Stecker of Livonia, Michigan.
