You have two more chances to play bridge at the Faculty Club before the school year comes to an end. As usual, the McGill Committee for Retired Professors welcomes you to this event that takes place twice a month. Before the summer holidays kick in, stop by with your pals for a match and a refreshing drink. It’s the perfect way to bid a temporary farewell to your game rivals before you see them again in the fall.
For more information, contact: Dorothy Thomas Edding and/or 514-932-8478.
As we approach the end of the 2013-2014 academic year, we can look back and reflect on this past year giving us the opportunity to better ourselves for the next season. This newsletter is also a perfect opportunity to thank all members for their continued support while wishing everyone a wonderful summer.
Here is a brief recap of the successful activities at the Faculty Club over the past academic year:
- Holiday activities; such as the Annual Christmas lunch and children’s brunch.
- We celebrated Scottish traditions on Robbie Burns Night with music, dancing, poetry, haggis and whiskey.
- Tuesdays saw bridge matches welcoming players of all levels.
- There were family events; such as Mother’s Day Brunch and all exotic food festivals featuring international flavours to tempt your taste buds. The two-week Lobster festival was a great success this year.
Once again, the Faculty Club’s Trivia Night worked out well this year. We raised $2,906 all of which was donated to Centraide. The six evenings attracted a full house and helped out a great cause.
A congratulatory note goes to this year’s trivia winners, Ministry of Truth – our four-time champions—a fourpeat, Thistle Rocks came in second place, Cashew in third place and close behind was Professor Covo’s team – Hôtel de Ville finished fourth.
We are always open to feedback and suggestions, so please do not hesitate to express your comments and concerns as it is the essence of our mandate.
We look forward to seeing you again next season when the new academic year begins.
Please note that the McGill Faculty Club’s last day of the season will be Friday, June 20th and will be ready to welcome you back on Monday, August 25th for another wonderful academic year.
Enjoy the summer holidays!

President, Faculty Club General Manager
