Toronto Branch Dinner – 24 April

The annual Toronto Branch dinner will be held at the Armour Heights Officers’ Mess, Canadian Forces College, on Friday, 24 April, 2009.

Our special guest and speaker for the dinner will be the RMC Commandant BGen. T.J. Lawson, who will leave the College in 2009. Tom has been promoted to MGen. and appointed Assistant Chief of the Air Staff at NDHQ.

Several cadets will also attend the dinner, so you will be able to get their perspective on life at the College today.

Of course the dinner is also a great opportunity to connect with classmates.
