Jide Adedeji (72), my boy hosted the inaugural meeting of the USA East Coast Chapter of the GCI OBA in April 2000 at his beautiful home in Bridgewater, New Jersey. I seize this opportunity to thank Jide and his lovely wife, Funmi for their great hospitality and goodwill towards the old boys in attendance. Their generosity included a scrumptious banquet of edibles and an array of exotic drinks that they laid before us. And as true old boys that we are,  we all did justice to the buffet, leaving all our plates sparkling clean at the end of the great feast.

Earlier in January 2000 A Special Buffet Dinner at the home of Kunle Ojo (69) aka Omo'ga (son of the Boss), afforded US based old boys the great opportunity of presenting a Plaque of Honor and Appreciation to our much loved and respected Principal from 1968 to 1974, Chief J. B. Ojo, himself an old GCI boy (1940-45). Chief & Mrs. Ojo had arrived a few weeks earlier from home in Nigeria via London where the old boys based in England had also feted them.

Photo No. [6] Chief & Mrs. J. B. Ojo in a group photograph with the old boys who attended the Silverspring Maryland meet. Beaming gleefully at center is Mayokun Oso (68) who deserves special mention for being the old boy from the furthest distance, having come all the way from Phoenix, Arizona on the West Coast. Special thanks are in order for Chief host 'Lakunle Ojo (69) (grinning to the immediate right of the Chief) and his dear wife, the co-host, who both  provided   for the boys a wonderful atmosphere in their home for the occasion.
