Lions and Breakfasts and Queens, Oh My!


Dear Merchistonians

As the Upper Sixth departs excitedly, it will be all too soon before they stop and think about what they've left behind. They'll be thinking about reunions, favourite old teachers, close School friends with whom they've since lost touch. Will Lindsay (87-94) is in this frame of mind and has been organising the 20 year reunion for the Class of 1994. If this is you, please do take a look here for more details about what's happening.

This week has been one of recognising achievements. I'm proud to have seen Merchistonians on the Queen's Honours List. I'd like to congratulate Reverend Professor Norman Drummond (65-70) for his CBE for Public and Voluntary Service and to Major General Ranald Munro (73-78) for his extensive military service.

Roger Baird (73-78) starts his Ride of the Lions sponsored cycle tomorrow and has already raised a wonderful amount for the charity Walking Wounded. If you would like to help spur him on that bit more, please donate here.

With regard to next week's Business Breakfast, can I once again please remind you that it will be THURSDAY 26 June and not Friday. A few of you have stated that Friday mornings have been difficult to attend, so do please come along to this one at Indigo Yard if you can. Graham Eden (71-73) will be giving a talk on 'Unsporting Penalties', perfect for this World Cup month. Come along for croissants, bacon, sausages, caffeine and, of course, the chance to network.

Finally, whilst I'm on the subject of football, Ian Dun (73-78) watched the England vs. Italy match last week at the Arena da AmazĂ´nia, Manaus. Pictures can be found here. If you live, work, or are visiting Brazil, please do get in touch and I'll arrange a get-together for you!

Kind regards

Amy
