Patrick Tai of Boston in town

Patrick Tai arrived at Toronto on Friday, January 11, 2013 for a few days.  Wong Hin-Shing arranged a welcom dinner on his arrival.  Patrick was taken to the restaurant in Markham by his friend, Chan Kai-Ming.  KM had to leave for home but he enjoyed the chat with the group as he knew some WYK boys of Class 65 very well while attending MIT.
The happy dinner went on for nealy 3 hours as Patrick has not met with some of the locals for years.  Lena Wong and Michael ordered the menu which paired extremely well with the wine, complement of Michael.

"Dear all,
I am so glad to see you at dinner last night. I recognised some of you but I am afraid not all.  Some of you have changed for the better :)
I am especially glad to meet Ho Sir.
We had wonderful conversation, recalling the "good old days".
The dinner was delicious, thank you so much.
If any of you happens to stop by Cambridge, MA, please stay at my home. My wife and I would love to play host.
I would send you some photos when they are ready.
Best.
Patrick"

Reunion 2011 HK DVD

壬辰年  清明

One part of the DVD is a series of "In Memoriam." It recollects, mainly from the perspective of the Class of '61, the Fathers, teachers and schoolmates who passed away. The project is an act of love and remembrance that constitutes a living link with the past and, hopefully, will form a reservoir of collective memories that live on, for the Class of ’61 and all Wahyanites.

It is now uploaded for a wider audience. The series is the work of Wong Hin-shing and Yu Fong-ying (both ’61).

50th Anniversary Reunion of Class of 1961, Toronto

Wong Hin-Shing writes, "The Toronto class of 1961 had their 50th Anniversary reunion on Wednesday, June 22, 2011 at Golden Court Abolone Restaurant, Richmond Hill. We were fortunate to have a room reserved for us through our classmate, Michael Chan.

There were altogether eight of us, including our honored guest Mr. Anthony Ho. Classmates present were: David Chan, Michael Chan, Clement Ching, Stephen Lam, Martin Lee, Bernard Wong and Hin-Shing Wong.

Mr. Ho had prepared a slideshow "In Memory of Fathers, teachers and classmates, R.I.P." with photos and data supplied by Hin-Shing. So the first event in the evening was viewing the photos of our dear Fathers, teachers and classmates who had passed away. We were indeed very moved as we remembered them.
