South West Ontario BMO Pensioners Luncheon March 12, 2019

March 13, 2019

On Tuesday March 12th/19 ,20 members of the group met at the Best Western Hotel in Brantford Ontario for it's 4th winter monthly lunch date. It was a nice sunny day to travel with a hint of spring in the air.

The location is closer to the Hamilton/Burlington area and we got a great representation from that area.

The restaurant offers an excellent buffet and all in attendance had an enjoyable lunch and a good time reminiscing with each other.

A special thank you to Ken Summers for his photography wizardry and for compiling the photos and names.

Jim Martin stepped in as emcee for Chuck Joynt, the SW Ontario Cyberpensioner's representative who luckily is spending some vacation time in southeast Florida.

Please go to the Photo Gallery to view the photos.

Thanks to Ken Summers for sharing.

Our next COC Quarterly Meeting will still be held on Thursday April 18th, at the IFL, however their has been a change of guest speaker. Unfortunately, our original speaker, Mr. Jode Roberts is unable to attend

Robert will describe how he accomplished this daunting 5500 kilometre trek.....he stated "The hardest part of the hike was to just keep going".
A significant achievement by a special person.

Letter from the Editor

February 6, 2019

altLetters to the Editor, articles, photos, stories and reports from our members have been an integral feature of our website over the years often stimulating feedback and follow-up responses.

Quite naturally not everyone is comfortable with writing something for publication. But we do want to encourage our members to write to us so we thought it might be helpful to briefly look at the type of submissions that seem to strike a cord with our membership.

The most popular theme would be memories of life in the bank. Stories about guns in branches easily tops the list. Articles, stories or old photographs reminding us of past major events or launches of departments, programs and products, reorganizations, memorabilia or social events likewise have created interest. These have often been told with humour, sometimes of the "believe it or not" variety and clearly lasting memories.

Photographs and reports of recent formal and informal lunches, both large and small have been increasing lately and seem to be especially popular.

Should you require assistance or advice either contemplating or structuring a submission, Joan Mesic, our Senior Correspondent is more than willing to help. We have a number of suggestions for topics including: life as a consultant after retirement, moving with the bank, vault stories, branch renovations, the old cafeterias, dealing with difficult customers or a personal story. If you have ideas for articles or stories that you think would capture the attention of our members, please contact us at

By the way banking trivia questions for our membership would also be welcome, but only if you know the answer!

So let me kick it off with two quick questions that just might be familiar to those who worked in the bank during the 1970's.

1) Can anyone tell us the name of the security guard who, regardless of whether or not he knew them, very conscientiously checked the identity of anyone trying to gain entry to the old OSVP offices at 50 King Street West in Toronto, sometimes several times a day?

2) Which executive had a suit of armour in his office?

Dave Harmer
