Each year The Old Hodgsonites Association holds an annual dinner:
For 2013 we celebrated the 50th OH dinner. Details of the next dinner – 2014 Tuesday 16th September – Carlton Club at 7PM for drinks with AGM at 7:30 followed by dinner.
Over the years the Dinner has been held in and around Clubland in London, the last few at The National Liberal Club at 1 Whitehall Place and or The Carlton Club in St James. With a break from tradition the 2013 50th Anniversary dinner was held at the very special The Charterhouse in the City.
Our dinners are a truly Hodgsonites affair encompassing present monitors of the House, musicians, House tutors and the Housemaster as well as any member of the OHA.
The Dinner is preceded by our AGM at which we remember OHs who have died during the previous year and the finances of the Association are presented. Elections of officers are made, the date and location of the next dinner is fixed and any other business of common interest to the Association is presented.
Over the last few years our after-dinner speaker has spoken on a topic related to a Carthusian theme. This has included talks about ‘Charterhouse Museum’, ’Robert Graves’, ‘Thomas Sutton and the founding statutes of Charterhouse’, ‘Music and Charterhouse’ and from Peter Nathan (’49) on the subject of the great cricketer: ‘Peter May, Sportsman and Friend’.
I would encourage anyone who has not seen contemporaries for a while to consider coming along or getting a group together and join us on the next occasion.
