On May 18 2009 we organized a leisure hike in Forks of the Credit Provincial Park about 24 km NW of Brampton. The weather was beautiful and there were about 20 of us including alumni and friends joining the walk.

Forks of the Credit is on the famous Bruce Trail. The park features the excitement of the Credit River, as it narrows and rushes through a deep gorge, plunging over a falls. The 12 km hike started at 2.30 p.m. and it took about 3 hours to complete the loop. The hiking trail was in good condition and was easy to walk. To continue the fun, many participants went to dinner together at the Best Dragon Seafood Crusine in Thornhill.

We had a great time together at the Annual Dinner held on Sunday (May 3rd, 2009) at Dragon Dynasty Chinese Cuisine in Scarborough.

Tea connoisseurs, Connie Fong and Rita So, were invited to the dinner to do a tea presentation.  This presentation was enjoyed by us all.  They explained in great details different types of tea, the usage of various utensils and how tea is supposed to be enjoyed.  We even got a chance to have a sip of tea and to practice how to enjoy tea by using your nose and taste buds.  With practical experience of delivering over 1000 presentations at places like ROM and Chinese Lantern Festival, Connie and Rita had truly made the evening most engaging and enjoyable.

A new board of directors have also been elected for the year 2009-2010 at the Annual General Meeting immediately preceding the Annual Dinner.
