Carousel Connections June 2022

Quebec House of Parliament

In June 2022 NZOA President John McKie attended the first full in person Carousel meetings since 2019. Here are some of his photos from the Canadian & American ASM's  - before Covid caught up with him.

These masked men got locked up when the Carousel & partners visited the Morrin Centre in Québec City Old Town.

The Past Presidents dinner was held at the Quebec Legislative Assembly. An opportunity to catch up with many familiar faces - including ABC Fellow Joe Baker & Alastair Younger a foot & ankle surgeon from Aberdeen who went on Fellowship to Vancouver about 30 years ago and never left- but he still sounds more Scottish than me!
