We thank all members who supported our Annual Dinner Meeting in May and attended the festivities. The evening was a great success; those present enjoyed an excellent meal and a most interesting illustrated address by Lorne Joyce concerning shipping on the Bay of Quinte. We sincerely thank Lorne for his efforts, and also Bill Wilson for arranging the meal.

MEMBERSHIP FEES ARE NOW DUE AND PAYABLE FOR THE 1981-1982 SEASON. We have held down our membership fees for a great many years in order to bring the benefits of participation in T.M.H.S. to our members for the lowest possible cost. We can, however, no longer function within the present fee structure and the certainty of substantial postal rate increases this autumn has forced us to consider an increase (unanimously approved at the May meeting) which should suffice for several years to come. As a result, fees are now $15.00 per annum and we would appreciate early remittance to Mr. James M. Kidd, 83 Humberview Road, Toronto, Ontario M6S 1W9.

In the New Member Department, a hearty welcome goes out to Capt. Ernest H. Ridd of Midland (the last master of ASSINIBOIA in regular service and commodore of the C.P.R. lake fleet), to Charles W. Salter, Capt. Carl Hirtle, and Claude Gauthier of Prescott, and to John A. Stewart of Nepean, Ontario.
