QART Trip to the Casino de Montreal

On Wednesday, April 11th 2018, QART members can enjoy a ‘DOO WOP’ entertainment show featuring hit tunes (English) from the 50’s to the early 60’s. You can watch, sing and dance to some of your all-time favorites. In addition, you will enjoy a full course buffet lunch in the Casino de Montreal dining room, called ‘Pavillon 67’, located on the 5th floor.


This outing was first announced at our St. Valentine’s Luncheon on Feb. 14th and all 20 places were signed up immediately. We have since acquired another 10 seats. Consequently, if you’re interested in reserving a spot or require further information, contact Annie Schaffhauser at (514)-374-1549 or by email to azuk1024@gmail.com.


Payment is by ‘cheque’ for $49.95 made out to Annie Schaffhauser. The last possible date for settlement is Wednesday, March 14th at the QART St. Patrick’s Luncheon. You can either mail out your cheque to Annie or, if attending the Luncheon, pay in person.


Once again, the ‘DOO WOP’ Buffet and Show outing will be held on Wednesday, April 11th at the Casino de Montreal. We will meet at the entrance to the Buffet for 11:15 A.M. The show starts at 1:30 P.M. The cost is $49.95 per person, tax and tip included. Parking is free or you may choose to use Valet Parking which will bring you right to the main floor and a very short walk to the elevators.

ACER-CART (Canadian Association of Retired Teachers)

I wish to thank Ed Zegray for the many years that he has represented QART on the ACER-CART directorship. I also wish to congratulate him on his recent appointment to the ACER-CART Executive. He is now an executive officer of ACER-CART as Regional Representative for Eastern Canada including Quebec and the Maritimes. Sadly this prevents Ed from representing us in particular

As President of QART, I will, by default, be QART's new representative at ACER-CART until such time as the QART Executive Committee names a new ACER-CART representative.

Ed will continue to represent us at the provincial level on the GTAR (Le Groupe de travail des associations de retraites).
