CSAC 1984 General Meeting
and Election of Officers

From Litir à Clann (Family Newsletter), June 1984 (Bulletin No 8), by the Association President, R. Malcolm "Mac" Sinclair.

Some twenty-two Sinclairs (or guests) met for dinner, entertainment and election of new executive officers of the Association on April 7th. This event was set at the beautiful Donald Gordon Centre, Queen's University at Kingston.

The dinner included a traditional piping in and Robbie Burns' "Address to a Haggis", a couple of short reports from the treasurer (we're solvent) and the president (he took too long). Interesting sidelights were:

Results of elections of officers for the two-year period 1984-1986 are:

  • President - R. Malcolm (Mac) Sinclair, Kingston, Ont.
  • Immediate Past President - Dr. Edward G. Sinclair, Norwood, Ont.
  • Vice Presidents - Alexander (Sandy) Sinclair, Newmarket, Ont.; John M. Sinclair, New Glasgow, N.S.
  • Secretary - Eileen M. Sinclair³, Kingston.
  • Treasurer - Heather Sinclair, Kingston.

Note: A few days after the election, I received a letter from Vice-President Sandy (Newmarket) stating that due to current ill health he does not now wish to continue as a Vice-President. There was no alternative to accepting this withdrawal.

The Toronto/Central Ontario area has many Sinclair families making a potentially strong and vigorous Association unit. Is there anyone (or a couple of members) in the area who would take on the development of this unit as a project?
