The party was held at the Masonic social club. The invitations were posted to everyone, including ? Alexander who had emigrated to Australia. His invitation should have been sent by airmail but, unfortunately, it wasn't and he received it on the day the reunion was held so was unable to attend.

This was a good excuse for a second reunion which was held a few months later when he was able to attend at Langholm Golf Club.
