Dave Carson has a new dog, and Irish Red/White Setter that he has named Bristol.
Grant’s son and Bill’s grandson (often our mascot Robear) won the junior football championship representing the Dundas Valley Secondary School Gryphons (aka the Highland Hawks). Jessica was quick to correct Ernie (and other former “Highlanders” of the new name).
Ralph talked about the $250 donation that we made to the sea cadets (also $250 from the noon club) for their help at the Lobsterfest. Wayne just bought a new car and apparently walked all the way to Kensington market in spite of that purchase.
Alycia (visiting for the meeting) has her baby due at the end of August. Her husband Matt is about to step down as president of his Rotary Club.
Shirley is also happy to be stepping down as our President as her husband will become the President of the Waterdown club.
Phil has just returned from a two week trip to England where he attended his niece’s wedding in Wiltshire. He was also honoured by the McMaster Engineering Department.
Mieke and her family visited Able Sail on the weekend and made a presentation on the club's behalf.
Our own Bill Armstrong was then introduced to give his classification talk once again. Scott Vance, who was sponsored by Bill, thanked him for a most interesting review of his life and career.
