214 Centenary Year 2024 Announcement and Action required

Civic Reception to celebrate 100 years of the 214th GCBB

On the 1st October 1924 the 214th Glasgow Company of the Boys Brigade was formed at Gordon Park Church in Whiteinch, Glasgow.

Next year, during 2024 the Ex Members Association will be celebrating our 100 years with various projects throughout the year.

We are delighted to inform you that the Lord Provost of Glasgow’s office has approved our request to celebrate the Centenary of the founding of the 214th GCBB.

This, the first fully confirmed project, will be held on:-

 Friday 4th October 2024

When there will be a Civic Reception at the City Chambers of Glasgow in our honour.

(At no cost to our Association)

The evening will start with a drinks reception at 7pm followed by a dinner.

We have only been allocated a total of 70 places for the occasion.

We would like as many of our ex Members who are able, to come and enjoy this celebration of 100 years of the 214.

(We will be looking at providing help for our members who may be infirm or in need of help to attend.)

This is not your official invitation.

That will arrive 6-8 weeks before the event if you have indicated you would like to attend.

It is important that we can get as many Ex Members as possible to attend, with this in mind we would like to see an indication of who is willing to come along on the evening. This will allow you and ourselves to plan ahead.

Ex members from all over the world will need time to organise their trip, if they are coming along.

To help with our planning YOUR ACTION IS REQUIRED.

Please respond to Alan the Secretary before Friday 7th July 2023.

Reply via this link to indicate your intentions.

We are looking forward to a great response from you all.

Sure & Stedfast (as we used to spell it)

The Ex Members Committee
