Faculty Club Newsletter April 2015 Edition
Now that March is finally behind us, we look forward to beautiful weather in April. It’s the perfect time of year to visit McGill University’s sister property, the Gault Estate. Located on the shores of Lac Hertel in Mont Saint-Hilaire, the reserve offers local residents and the general public a mini recreational retreat. A place to find peace of mind or organise an executive meeting, the staff on hand is ready to fulfill all your needs. The Gault Estate was officially renamed the Gault Nature Reserve by McGill University and is recognised as a private natural reserve under the natural heritage conservation act by the Ministère du Développement durable de l’Environnement et des Parcs du Québec.

Please keep in mind that Mother’s Day is just around the corner – Sunday, May 10th. What better way to celebrate that special day with a delicious brunch at the club? The event sells out quickly, so please make sure to visit the McGill Faculty Club website to reserve your spot. Click here
Bridge: Tuesdays, April 14th and 28th -- Maude Abbott Room at 13:15 to 16:15
All bridge aficionados are invited to the Faculty Club! The McGill Committee for Retired Professors welcomes new participants as well as the “regulars” to this event. Normally, players of all levels gather twice a month for a nice friendly match with others to share a passion for the same pastime. We look forward to seeing you with a deck of cards!
