In the Next Issue: The Crusader

The next issue of The Crusader, originally scheduled to be published this month, will now be published in late August.

The publication delay will permit the inclusion of several articles about well-attended and exciting Alumni events which have occurred in recent weeks.

These include Alumni Drama, the Alumni Golf Tournament, the 25th Reunion of the Class of 1984 and Alumni Chapter Meetings in Toronto and Ottawa.

It will also permit the celebration of the Class of 2009, the latest St Paul’s students to join the ranks of alumni.

Things to look for in this issue:

Nick Laping ’61 (1942-2009)
As an alumnus, teacher, coach, mentor and major Crusader sports enthusiast, Nick Laping served the school in many ways and the school benefitted tremendously from his contributions. His fellow alumni, teachers and friends share their memories of Nick.
