Sixteen Old Boys and five staff members gathered online April 20 for the annual Toronto Old Boys’ Reunion.
Headmaster Mike Downey brought everyone up to speed about how the school is dealing with the COVID situation, predicting that the school would be operating as normal by fall.
“We hope to be back in blazers and ties by September,” he said.
The conversation dwelt on the prospects of forming an Old Boys’ pickup hockey team in Toronto, and the speculation about who will be next to join the school’s Athletic Hall of Fame.
“I remember Gordon Phillips in his blue convertible two-seater with the rumble seat en arrière transporting soccer balls and whatever else was needed up to the two soccer fields we used on the mountain,” said Anson McKim.
