Upper Canada College’s fifth annual “Legal LunchNet,” organized by the Common Ties program, was hosted for the second time by Andrew Matheson ’87 at Toronto’s McCarthy Tetrault LLP on Nov. 22.
These lunches have always been hosted by a member of the class of ’87, a close-knit group that included many lawyers. Matheson co-hosted this year’s event with McCarthy Tetrault colleagues and UCC parents Brian Pel and Godyne Sibay.
Common Ties Advisory Committee chair Evan Thompson ’73 and committee member (and UCC parent and past parent) John Elias welcomed attendees and thanked McCarthy Tetrault for its support. Fifty guests attended, representing a wide range of career stages, with the oldest Old Boy being from the leaving class of 1966 and the youngest having just graduated this past spring.
Common Ties will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2014 and, to mark the occasion, the program will celebrate by hosting 10 events within the calendar year — double what it has ever done before.
