Hi Guys,

Here is a short report from my mate Lucian Alles (Past President) of the Toronto OBU Bens Branch in Canada.

Certainly looks like the Benediction fellowship is truly flourishing

throughout the world, keep it up guys.

We are all growing with age as the years go by so do not let this slow you guys down.

Please convey our best wishes and congratulations to the President, members and his committee a job very well done.

For your information I think the Vancouver Branch is having their dinner dance this coming Saturday the 28th May. So the Green and White is truly fluttering.

Good Luck to the Vancouver Branch too and hope everything works out as well too.

Hi Franklyn,

Congratulations to the Committee of the Old Bens in Melbourne for organizing a successful “Curry Night”

Saturday, May 14 also happened to be the 20th anniversary “Benedictine Night” Dinner Dance of the Old Bens in Toronto. We had a packed hall of around 275 guests consisting of Bens along with their families and friends. The music was provided by a popular live band and DJ. There were four air tickets given away in the grand raffle draw along with many other prizes. The dance was held as always in the laudable traditions of yesteryears in an environment of superb music, delicious food, lively bonhomie and camaraderie that is characteristic of “Benedictine Nite” around the world.
