This year is the 75th AGM of the Old Boys’ Club and it would be fabulous if you could join us and meet up with old friends. Our speaker for 2014 is Adrian Bell who was Senior Chief 1983-84 and now a partner at the legal firm of Morton Fraser not to mention the eldest of the four Bell brothers who all attended Keil. It is 30 years since the class of 84 left school so a special invite goes out to that era.
Saturday 29th November 2014 @ 8pm, preceded by the AGM @ 7pm at
The Kibble Suite, Hilton Grosvenor Hotel
Grosvenor Terrace, Great Western Road, Glasgow G12 0TA.
Tickets £30.00 per person
