The 2006 SPOCA Dinner was enjoyed by 64 people who gathered on Friday 3rd November at Eastern Golf Club, Doncaster. The diners which included 10 guests and 19 ladies were welcomed by a beautiful spring evening. On arrival the ladies were presented with an orchid bouquet.
At the commencement of the night Father Tom Cassidy OP (1951 - 1959) Provincial of the Dominicans, proposed a toast to the Society which included several humorous anecdotes about his school days. Fr.Gerard Healy SJ responded on behalf of the Society.
Following grace said by Fr. Tom Lees SJ, a splendid meal and good wines were enjoyed by all. Between courses, Patricians of varied ages mingled freely throughout the dining room, which overlooked the tranquil, manicured grounds of the golf course.
Many favourable comments were forthcoming as to how the venue had facilitated a most convivial night.
