Our March Meeting featured Capt. F. R. Berchem, master of the Canadian hydrographic vessel BAYFIELD, who presented reminiscences of visits to the Labrador area aboard our old friend PORTE DAUPHINE. The address was illustrated with Capt. Berchem's own sketches of the Labrador coast and ports.
THE ANNUAL DINNER MEETING will be held at the Ship Inn on Saturday, May 4. Dinner will be served at 7:00 and the bar will open early for those wishing a restorative before the meal. Speaker will be member and author Gordon Wendt, who will present "In The Wake of The WALK-IN-THE-WATER", an illustrated history of steamboating in the Sandusky, Ohio, area. Dinner is $18.00 and guests are welcome. Space is limited, and reservations may be secured by directing early remittance to Mr. William R. Wilson, 173 Glenrose Avenue, Toronto, Ontario M4T 1K7. Reserved (paid) tickets will be held at the door. Please plan to join us for what promises to be a most enjoyable evening.
Please Note: Reservations, accompanied by payment, must be received by April 30th. We regret that there can be no refunds after that date, and that tickets will not be sold at the door, for we must guarantee numbers to the Inn in advance of the dinner.
In the New Member Department, a hearty welcome goes out to Eric Fowler of Sarnia, to Thomas R. Strangway of Lake Orion, Michigan, to Harry McCullough of Mississauga, to Elmer Freestone of Owen Sound, and to Joe Chapman of Bayfield, Ontario.
