Kemptville Alumni Building construction starts
The Kemptville College Alumni has turned the sod for the Kemptville College Alumni Historical Building, which is scheduled to be inaugurated during a reunion next year.
A sod-turning ceremony took place recently at the Lombardy Agricultural Fair Grounds near Smiths Falls, where the yearly alumni reunion is held.
Over 70 people attended the sod turning while 175 attended the reunion banquet that evening.
Fundraising started after the building was approved last August.
Financial contributors will receive a charitable receipt and names will be displayed in the new building and on the www.kcalumni.ca web page.
Alumni, and businesses and organizations supported by Kemptville grads, can support the campaign by sending cheques to Kim Link, Treasurer, 12261 Link Road, Winchester ON K0C 2K0.
Memorabilia that you have from your time at Kemptville can also be displayed in the building. Contact President Audrey Baker, firstname.lastname@example.org
