UPCOMING JAMAICA CHAPTER MEETING:
Good Afternoon Everyone;
Just a note to advise you all that I am half way back from out of space. It has been a long time since you all have not heard from me, and I am aware that you are all anxious to hear what is going on. Well, thank God, I am two (2) months away from finishing school (for the time being), and will endeavour to keep the link going.
Please be advised, that after not having a Mothers’ Day Brunch last year, by popular demand, we will be hosting one on Sunday May 10, 2009. This year promises to be bigger and better than every other, so can you imagine what is being planned.
As such, Past Students in Jamaica are being urged to attend a Special Meeting of the Association on Friday March 20, 2009 at the Officers Club, Up Park Camp, commencing at 6:00 p.m. sharp.

Knox Florida Reunion Update:
The Knox Reunion which was held in South Florida in June was a big Success. We would like to thank all of our fellow Knoxites in Florida and across the U.S., Canada and Jamaica who worked so hard to put this event together. We were very pleased with the reunion turnout. We had four hundred and fifty people attend the reunion Banquet. We are pleased to announce that $5,000.00 has been sent down to Knox Junior School, Knox High School and Knox Community College, for a total U.S.$15,000 donation to Knox. We have requested that these funds go toward educational purposes. We have held back $2,300.00 from from the reunion to fund future Florida events, and to start a Knox Foundation. We will head off the Knox Foundation in mid 2005.
