The Friday evening marks the day when Queen City Yacht Club received its first letter of incorporation from the City of Toronto 125 years ago on August 15, 1889.We are holding a GAM session and inviting all long time members to share with us their memories of QCYC. I hope that lots of long time members and members will show up at 7:30pm in the Great Hall. This will be a free informal event with no formal presentations.
The 125th Anniversary Committee will be holding an old movie night showing video clips of QCYC from the 1930s to 1970s in the Great Hall at 7pm on Saturday June 14th. Don Hinchley will also have a special pen to raffle off but he is not telling me anything about it except that it is very special. You will also be able to purchase a copy of the movies on DVD for $20. All proceeds with go towards the 125th celebrations.
