Arrival was 2pm. I have to confess that I can in 2 hours later, 4pm but still a sizeable crowd of OBs was all over the place already chatting, laughing and networking with each other. Most had not seen or met each other since the college days!
To pick a quote behind the David Walugembe who was over-seeing the organization of the Alumni:
In a nutshell, that was what the event was all about and that is exactly what happened!
Why should you miss a free event where you only have to show up at Livingstone Hall, Makerere, have muchomo, share jokes including "eminazi" and drink one for maama joe, another for mubazzi and may be the last one for the greencave!!By the way your biggest assets in life are none other than your contacts!! Imagine how flat life becomes when you are in need of a service and the service provider is someone who is known to you courtesy of being a Kitovian??? Okitegera???
Drinks of all sizes & colour - waragi, belos and sodas for the still nappy-sucking OBs were also in the house. We had a new-comer "spear" taking shots of whoever appeared to please him which he later sold off for a couple of bucks. I will put up shots of any of the events when they finally come out.
We had a number of updates from the people behind the Centenary projects fund-raising and from Bro. Headmaster about the state of our great college.
Here is what is coming up:
St. Henry's Day Celebrations are slated for Sunday 11th July 2010. (Spare that date for yet another re-union this time in Masaka).
A SHACK centenary fund-raising charity walk is coming up soon stay tuned for details. Continue pledging and fulfilling your pledges please.
