SAVE THE DATE: SAT., JUNE 8, 2013—Annual RYCI Golf & Social Reunion, Royal Woodbine Golf Club, Toronto, Ontario

Calling all former Royal Yorkers (spouses/partners welcome, too)! Show your school spirit and have a great time renewing old acquaintances, catching up, and making new friends. For some 16 years, Vic Harris and a team of dedicated volunteers have been organizing this terrific golf and social event. You don’t need to play golf to attend. You can just come for the evening reception and dinner. The 2012 event had about 100 attendees. Let’s do even better in 2013. There’s also a prize table and raffle, with money being raised for charity (something Royal Yorkers always did well!).
The RYCI Golf & Social Reunion will be held at the Royal Woodbine Golf Club, 195 Galaxy Blvd., Toronto, Ontario M9W 6R7, tel. (416) 674-4653.
So, put Saturday, June 8, 2013 into your datebook now and (if you haven't done so already) send Vic Harris your name and contact information to get on the mailing list (at least an email address; postal address if you want printed info). You can reach Vic via this website, which also has more info on/photos from this annual event: http://www.perkinsservices.com/charity.html
We hope to see you there!
