eighth reunion, of what was ostensibly for the Ross Grammar
School intake years 1949-1950, was held again at the Ross
Conservative Club on Saturday, 8th May. A similar event
has been held ever year since 2002, with the exception of
2009 when the organizer Jerry Lyons was supposed to be handing
over arrangements to another member, but it failed to materialize.
few new faces showed at this year's event, from the intended
intake years as well as from other periods. The event is
growing as every year, more people hear about it.
organizer Jerry Lyons said, 'It
would be nice to get more people from the 1949-1950 intake
years and arranging this may be just a matter of contacting
100th anniversary of the laying of the foundation stone
of Ross grammar School will occur next year on 16th May.
No doubt there will be some wanting to commemorate that
day. Does anyone know if this is so? 'Beryl
Downing and her staff provided us with lots of good things
to eat and a lot of people were asking when the next event
would be. No doubt there will be one in May 2011 if I am
still fit enough by then to arrange it.'
