For Sunday, we plan on meeting at the Viscount Gort Hotel for their brunch. We plan on meeting at 11:00 am. If we get 25 or more, which should be easy, we can book a private room. For those who have to leave later on Sunday, it should give them enough time.

For those interested in visiting Brookside Cemetery, a map of the grounds with the grave sites marked for all of the Johnson family that are buried there is available.

**If anyone has allergies or requires a special menu, please let us know.

Bring your camera and also any old pictures of your family. I am sure there are more pictures than have been included in Garry's website. Also, for those who are interested in genealogy, it would be a great time to update our family tree.
