(info from the 48th Highlanders Old Comrades Association):
I am sure that you are aware that the year 2001 is the 110th Anniversary of the founding of our Regiment.
A Reunion Committee has been struck, a plan is in place to mark this historic occasion, and all that is required is your attendance.
The 110th Reunion will be celebrated Friday evening May 11 through Saturday evening, May 12. The schedule is as follows:
Friday May 11 / Moss Park Armoury / Registration - 12:00 hrs
Open House - 18:00 hrs
Saturday May 12 Nathan Phillips Square Freedom of the City Parade
Exact Times - TBA
St.Andrews Church / Refreshments - Provided by IODE, L.Aux. in the Great Hall following the parade.
St.Andrews Church / Tour the Regimental Museum until 15:00 hrs.
Moss Park Armoury / Regimental Ball -
Cocktails - 18:30 hrs
Dinner - 19:30 hrs
The overall subscription cost for the Reunion will be $25.00 per person. The active serving members of the Regiment are exempt from the Registration fee as they are required to parade for the Reunion.
The 110th reunion Committee has worked very hard to put together this program. The Freedom of the City ceremony promises to have large numbers of “Torontonians” in attendance due to the heavy publicity, which will be generated by both the Regiment and the City. The Museum is also opening its doors to show the tremendous amount of work the Museum Committee has put into its new premises.
Please plan on attending this important Regimental occasion. The Regiment needs and deserves your support.
The Warrant Officers and Sergeants mess is hosting the Regimental Ball on behalf of the Reunion Committee and have promised an evening to remember. Good food, good friends. good music, and a few “drams” will be featured. Attendance at the Ball will cost an additional $48.00 p/p to cover the cost of the dinner, live orchestra and of course our own Pipes and Drums.
Pre-registration can be made by contacting the Orderly Room at 416-973-2181.
