Event 2017 started with the usual meet and greet of people from far and wide, around the globe. Germany, the Caribbean, Canada and UK of course. There is always that feeling of warmth, togethernes, joy and even tears when people meet each other, some who have not met since early 70’s. It is a sight to behold, sometimes speechless, just a bear hug, a slap on back and even memory loss. Yes, most of us are firmly Senior Citizens and cannot deny it.

That long?................Yes!                Just right here...                                 Is it really yoy?........Yes its me                                            Having fun?

The event started with due recognition to those who has past on before us by paying respect with a salute of our Standards.

Some would say that this event was the best to date. If it wasn’t then it would be a very close second to the first one. The ingredient of the night was right, from greetings, reminiscing, respecting those who have passed, food and entertainment, it all blended into a joyous occasion. As our motto goes, FUN, LAUGHTER and EDUCATION.

A huge thanks to you the people that made this happen and much appreciation to the EPR Committee Members for yet another successful event.
