The Autumn Lunch was held at the Marriott on Thursday 11th October, attended by 50 FPs and current pupils.
We had a very enjoyable lunch, followed by the raffle which culminated with the star prize, afternoon tea for two at the recently opened “Mackintosh at the Willow” on Sauchiehall Street. Gordon Caskie, who has recently moved house found an excellent watercolour painting of the old school building which had been painted by George Taggart, who passed away earlier this year. Gordon offered this painting to be auctioned for club funds.
It was “won” for an undisclosed sum by Ron Fernand.
Iain Callander made a short speech highlighting the stories of three former pupils and their sacrifice during the First World War, followed by a reading of a poem by John Munro. A small cross with a poppy remembering the loss of Robert Jeffrey and sent to us by his great niece was given to Molly Reid who will place it on the memorial at the school.
