Blue & Blue - September 2006
Welcome to the third edition of your B & B for 2006.

Annual Mass & Dinner – mark your diary now.  This function will be held on Thursday, Nov 2nd 2006. The venue will once again be at The Bowlers Club of NSW, York St, Sydney.
Some changes for the usual Mass arrangements will be necessary due to the 2nd being All Souls Day. St Patrick’s are a little less flexible than normal and the Mass time will be 5.30 pm and it will be one of the normally scheduled Masses. Our participation in the liturgy will be limited.
The Dinner function will be able to start a little earlier due to the earlier Mass time and this may be a help for some who do not wish to be out late that night. It will be 6.30 pm for 7.15 pm.
It is understood that the classes of ’44 and ’54 are planning a special attendance this year. I urge you to book early and make sure you let the class organizer know you will be on their table/s. This is particularly an issue with non-members who hear about the reunion second or third hand and don’t have a form to fill out and return. Last year we had some embarrassment due to communication problems and it is our intention to avoid this if at all possible. There will be reserved tables this year provided appropriate advice is received beforehand from class organizers.

Annual Luncheon.
This year we headed for the Esperanto Room at the City Tattersals Club for our luncheon. Some 30 old boys were in attendance including Br John Thompson, Marist Provincial, and Br Lucius Burnheim. Also attending was Joe Hall and his son, Gary. This reminds me to mention that any old boy needing to be accompanied or just wanting to have someone along to share these occasions should feel free to invite that person along – they would of course be very welcome. Thanks for coming Gary.
We shared an excellent meal and many memories. I would think this function will grow more popular as day time functions become more convenient to members.
