The former College Hall and Classroom for Classics hosted the official inauguration cocktail of the Morrin Centre today. Over 135 people were in attendance, including Ralph Mercier, representative of the City of Quebec, and Steven Blaney, federal deputy. The event attracted people of all generations, ranging from older denizens of the Society to younger people who had come to listen to the music of Clément Jacques and Randall Spear. People were impressed by the charm of the new green velvet curtains, college-era colours, and newly varnished floor. This inauguration marks the halfway point in our restoration project, which will be continued throughout Phase II in 2007.
