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.
Heritage Toronto will be unveiling a historical plaque to QCYC to celebrate our 125th anniversary. The dedication will be on the Ward's Island dock at 3:00pm on Saturday, June 7th. We hope to see lots of members there. I will conduct a historical walk and talk from the dock around the moorings in the lagoon, through the marine yard and ending with a tour of the club house which you might find interesting. If you have not all ready donated to the plaque please see Laura or Allison at the Office.
We will dedicate the new Time Capsule this Saturday May 31st at 5:00pm in the club house lobby. We will start to fill it with items that will be of interest to members in 2039. The capsule which was acquired by Yves Florack of the 125th Anniversary Committee is made from a rather unique item which all Canadian sailors will find interesting.
