The SLC Retirees Association will be hosting three events for retirees and other past employees of the college in conjunction with the Kingston Campus Alumni Day on June 24. Details follow, along with a link to register for any or all of these events.
Please make it a point to drop in to the Essence Dining Room (on the lower floor at the back of the building, the end closest to the Gym) between 12 and 4 pm to connect with former colleagues who may be there. Copies of the Book of Memories describing memorable characters and events from the first half century of SLC will be available for viewing and ordering. We are planning to have a display board with photos and memorabilia. You are welcome to bring along photos to contribute or to send them electronically for printing, to firstname.lastname@example.org. SLC graduates are also welcome to visit Essence, where they may encounter some former teachers. In fact, if there are any teachers – or other college staff – SLC graduates would like to see again, please send an email and we will let them know if we have current contact information for them.
Social Gathering and Dinner
The second floor of the Cataraqui Golf Club (immediately adjacent to the college on the west) will provide a relaxing atmosphere for retirees and former employees to reconnect, mingle with former colleagues, and enjoy a cash bar between 4 and 6. This will be followed by a prix fixe dinner in the upstairs dining room at the Golf Club, beginning at 6.
Registration is required for the latter two events and is also encouraged even if you only plan to come to the Welcome Centre. This will allow us to get in touch if we have more details to share as plans for the day evolve – such as a possible get together for present and past participants in “old-timers hockey,” SLC style. To register, go to https://slcretirees.eventbrite.ca and specify which of the three events – Welcome Centre, Social Gathering, and/or Dinner – you plan to attend.
We hope you will make it a point to come to Kingston on June 24, take in the various Alumni Day activities and, especially, sign up for the events hosted by the Retirees Association. Looking forward to seeing you.
