It was a night of camaraderie, pride and remembrance at the Crow’s Nest Officers’ Club on September 23rd for the 2nd Annual “Fallen 51” Dinner.
This dinner is held each Fall in honour of the 51 boys from St. Bonaventure’s College who made the supreme sacrifice during the First World War.
Alumnus Gary Browne ’63 gave an insightful speech on college alumnus Lieutenant Colonel Padre Thomas Nangle C.F ‘1909 and his extraordinary contribution during the First World War. It gave all in attendance a great sense of pride and honour to be fellow St. Bon’s alumni.
Student Jane Hutchings ’17 delivered and delightful speech on the school song and its connection to the 51 boys who died.
Proceeds from this event support St. Bonaventure’s College Bursary Fund, to ensure that no child is unable to attend St. Bonaventure’s College because of inability to pay.
