Prepress party

Organizers of a Toronto Sun prepress party for current and former employees tell TSF it won't be open to others.

Randy Miller said the BBQ gathering was originally planned for the few prepress employees let go since September and the dozen remaining employees still on the job.

And they have decided to keep it that way.

"The idea of a large reunion is difficult in that it would require a lot of planning and we would be uncertain as to what we would have to prepare for since a lot of talented people have passed through the doors at 333 King St. E. over the years," says Randy.

"The idea of a Sun reunion is interesting but would require perhaps a committee to organize this. Many of the employees who would be interested from all the various departments are now gone.

"If some would like to suggest how this could be arranged I would be glad to help."

Thanks for the update, Randy.

With the 40th anniversary of the Toronto Sun coming up in 2011, why not put feelers out now for an organizing committee for one final come one, come all Sun alumni reunion?

About 150 people showed up for the 2006 Save Our Sun reunion and that was accomplished in a matter of weeks. Two years is more than adequate to plan a 40th anniversary bash.

Let's do it up right, in the memorable grand style of Doug, Peter and Don, with music, memories and a salute to the 62 Day Oners.

  1. And who is going to chip in and help pay for this party/reunion...PKP? I do not think so, and would he be invited as well?
