Information received from Doug Southen!
Our friend Big George will be 84 years young this Sunday, 30 December. He will be celebrating on that day with family. But a number of us are going to host him for another birthday lunch on Saturday 5 January at 1130. Location is the East Side Mario's on Division Street south of the 401. The owner, Dan Lambert, grew up in a military family and is a supporter of the Soldier On charity. He is a fine fellow and his place serves good food, PLUS they have a large parking lot. There is also a big hockey tournament in Kingston that weekend, and space will be at a premium. So it is IMPORTANT that you let me know if you will be there, so I can reserve seats for us. I need this information by noon 2 January, by e-mail please (firstname.lastname@example.org).
I told Dan Lambert the ESM owner, that this will be a "dress rehearsal" for the Dell Blakney Memorial Brunch, tentatively scheduled for this same venue near the end of February. I am waiting to hear back from the Blakney family if the date I suggested will work for them.
Lunch for George
Saturday 5 January at 1130.
