With this issue we unveil a new look for the newsletter.  Technology is ever changing and we have to keep abreast or be left behind in the cyber dustbin.  And so our web designer, Earl Adams has been hard at work on the new format.   It's still a work in progress but we eventually hope to realize certain production efficiencies from all this effort.

The Toronto chapter has elected a new board returning many familiar faces such as its president, Lance Seymour for another year.

We were very saddened to learn of the untimely passing in Jamaica of Dr Ricardo Fraser, brother of KCOBA Jamaica's chairman, Dr Ray Fraser. Our heartfelt condolences go to the Fraser family at this time of great loss and tragedy.

Two other Fortis brothers also left us recently, Ian Bailey in New Jersey and Dr Trevor "Butt" Lewis in Jamaica.

Some old boys have been traveling recently:  a team of attorneys traveled to England for a case before the Privy Council and Dr. Vaughn was part of Jamaica's medical team to earthquake torn Haiti to provide assistance. You can read about these stories elsewhere in this month's edition.

Lorne Donaldson was recently inducted into the Colorado Youth Soccer Hall of Fame.  He is currently president of the Real Colorado Soccer Club.

The NY banquet is coming up in May so it's time to make your arrangements.

Congrats to Leighton Spencer for being the first son of an old boy to win the 5K at the recent Douglas Forrest Invitational in Kingston.

Happy reading!
Glen Laman
