Garden Route (Knysna) OJ luncheon
A few months have passed since our great gathering at the Cruise Café in Knysna, found suitable for this historic occasion by Mike Dane. Folks are still talking about who looked older than whom and it was indeed a great occasion with fine food and palatable wine shared with school vintage sagas that have stood the test of time. As our age increases those wonderful school memories are easily recalled.
The proceedings were opened with a prayer by Rod Greville and a moments silence for those no longer with us. Our most recent loss was Gavin Downes (1949).
It was then all chatting, eating, drinking and singing before Ham thanked Ed for putting it all together. No one staggered out and the cutlery remained behind. We all look forward to the next one.
The following OJs were present at our gathering:
|Allan & Audrey Howe||1956||Thomson|
|Mike & Margi Dane||1961||Thomson|
|Steve & Barbara Getliffe||1961||Thomson|
|Iain & Louise Chancellor Madison||1963||Nash|
|Ed & Sally Cutten||1966||Thomson|
|Bert & Brenda Evans||1966||Thomson|
|Rod & Peta-Ann Greville||1966||Nash|
|Graham & Stella Mellor||1966||Clayton|
|Andy & Margi Dane||1967||Thomson|
|Peter & Margaret Brown||1968||Clayton|
This time around the day boys certainly out shone the borders with Thomson undoubtedly clear winners.
