The St. Stanislaus College Alumni Association Toronto – Annual Spring Dance – April 18, 2020

The St. Stanislaus College Alumni Association is making an early start to our fund-raising events for 2019. Our first major event of the year is our Spring Dinner/Dance which will be held on Saturday 18th April 2020 at West Rouge Community Centre.

Last year this event was sold out (as is usually the case for the past several years) and we hope that by sharing this information early, many of you will plan accordingly to contact your regular ticket seller to order your tickets. Again, we encourage you to do so as soon as possible. We continue to provide reserved seating for groups of six or more purchasing tickets at the same time. Be sure to let your ticket seller know that you would like reserved seating, in whose name, and for how many patrons. Then remind the ticket holders to tell the ushers at the door on the night of the event, at whose table they will be seating.

Order your tickets TODAY to avoid being disappointed.       Continue reading

Opinion: Ensuring Progress is made in the Start of a New Decade – By Yvonne Sam

— By Yvonne Sam

Readers forgive me if I fail to reflect any change in my approach now that 2020 has arrived.  In fact, in the name of progress and enlightenment I have resolved to be even more brutally honest. Of late, for some strange reason it has become apparent that when Blacks climb to a position of power it seems as if they are afraid to help their own people.

Instead they sometimes display a willingness in part to help destroy us. Get it straight, I am not talking about the typical phrase, “I’m going to help you get a job.” I am strictly talking about the lack of a pure willingness to help our communities and our people to move forward.   

On the other hand, whenever individuals from other races are occupying positions of power or prestige, they go all out to help their people. They demonstrate their willingness of what they would do to put both them and their communities in a position to succeed, and quite frankly they could not give a hoot about what anyone says or thinks.            Continue reading
