The Board will go ahead with a new series of weekly fund-raising efforts called 'Purple Wednesday', to be held at 'Weekendz' club (soon to be renamed Fusion) along Constant Spring Road, St Andrew. This effort is being spearheaded by director, Delano Reynolds, the owner/operator of Weekendz. The event will be a regular social, featuring vintage/retro music, part proceeds from which will go to the Old Boys Association.
After an absence of a few years, the much-admired Purple Masters will return, also at Weekendz/Fusion, on Sunday, July 25. This too, is being spearheaded by Delano Reynolds.
We will notify you of other events as soon as we confirm them.
In the meantime, we have successfully negotiated a meeting with the Lord Bishop of Jamaica on Monday, June 7 at a venue to be decided in the Corporate Area. It begins at 7:30.
