On August 10th, 2014, KCOBA New England launched their first annual family fun day at Winding Trails Park in Farmington, CT. The president of KCOBA Jamaica, Dr. Patrick Dallas was the special guest for the occasion.
The venue features a beautiful soccer field, boating on the lake and scenic views along the winding trails.
The chapter actually launched their 1st fundraising effort as the year 2013 ended. A souvenir calendar was offered featuring drawings from Bally Reid (former track and football standout) of past principals Douglas Forrest (1956 -1965), Rev. Don Taylor (1971-1973), Cannon Dr. John McNab (1974-1978), Woodburn Miller (1980-1986), Major Cohen (1987-1993) and Mr. Wally Johnson (1994-2005). Also featured were pictures of Bishop Gibson, the first students in 1925, the present principal, Mr. Dave Myrie, Hardie House and the chapel. This was truly a collector's piece for a $10 donation.
In 2009, Kingston College Old Boys residing in Greater Hartford and Springfield desired to expand the work that the New York chapter has done into New England. They decided to adopt all the objectives and to rename and formalize the group as The Kingston College Old Boys New England.
