Greetings friends and neighbors! Our next FoRRP Meeting will be held one week from today, Wednesday, November 7th from 6:30–8:30 pm. The location will be College Shaw Library, 766 College Street, Auditorium (lower level).
We are thrilled to have an extra special guest in attendance that evening, Fred Hamilton Q.C., son of the late Fred Hamilton whose name graces one of our parks. According to the Hicks Morley website, where he is listed as a founding partner, Fred Hamilton graduated from the University of Toronto with a B.A.Sc. (Honours) in 1954 and subsequently attended law school at Osgoode Hall. He was admitted to the Bar in 1958. He has also been certified by the Law Society of Upper Canada as a Specialist in Labour Law and appointed a Queen’s Counsel. Fred served as Vice-President and President of the Toronto Board of Trade and President of the York Downs Golf and Country Club. He has served for many years on the Molson Indy Festival Foundation and its successor, Grand Prix Charitable Foundation. He is co-chair of the Bike for Tykes event raising funds for Bloorview Kids Rehab. Fred is now a Partner Emeritus in the Firm.
We look forward to hearing Fred’s story. Please join us in giving him a warm welcome!
