OMS AGM and Annual Supper 2017 – 31st March

Dear Old Maidstonians,

OMS AGM and Annual Supper 2017 – 31st March

The AGM and Annual Supper will be held on Friday 31st March 2017. The AGM will be held from 17:45 to 18:30.
As with last year, the Supper will commence promptly at 19:30, and will conclude by 22:00, although the hall and bar will remain open until 23:00.
Entrance this year will again only be through the main entrance door, where you will be greeted. The bar will be open by 17:30. The cost is £22 per head – unfortunately there was an error in the Winter Newsletter in stating that it was £18. Dress is jacket and tie.

The Committee is pleased to announce that the President for 2017 to 2018 will be Sam Coppard, who was School Captain during the 2011 school year. The installation will take place at the Annual Supper.

Over the past few years the numbers have steadily increased, and we are hoping this year to continue the trend – especially with the installation as President of a recent School Captain which we hope will attract a more active involvement from the recent leavers.

Wives and partners are very welcome to attend. If you wish a table to be reserved then please let me know. We very much hope that you will attend, and look forward to seeing you there. The booking form can be found here in Word
