The parcipang Mas Bands for this
year’s Toronto Caribbean Carnival have
begun to put their mas producon ma
-chinery into gear. The schedule of Band
Launchings that unocially signals the
commencement of Toronto’s Carnivalseason has begun to take shape.
Blues Carnival Fusion was the rst to
get out of the blocks with the April 13
launching of their 2013 Presentaon:Lost Civilizaons. Hosted by SKF, theLaunch reportedly aracted a sizeable
crowd to view the Narissa Ali led Band’slive display of its 2013 Costumes.Following hard on the heels of BluesCarnival Fuzion is Toronto’s peren-nial Band of the Year Winner, Carnival
Naonz. The two-me defending
champions has set sights on takingits masqueraders deep into the bluethis year with the release of its 2013
Presentaon The Reef.
Typically 2,500 to 3,000 strong in
numbers, Carnival Naonz’ costumes
will again be designed this year byMarcus Eustace. Fresh from his Moko
In Flames Carnival King victory in
Trinidad’s earlier this year, Eustace has
promised that Naonz 2013 costumes
will be the best the band has ever
produced. Given that Naonz has wonBand of the Year ve mes in the eight
years that have passed since its 2005
introducon to the Toronto Carnival
landscape, that’s no small boast.
A few blocks away at their How
-den Street Mas Camp, the members
of Louis Saldenah’s Mas K Club willbe francally toiling in preparaon
for the Band’s April 27 Launch of its
2013 Presentaon: Heaven and Earth.Interesngly enough both Naonz andSaldenah’s MasK Club have choosen theKool Haus as the venue for their respec
-
ve launchings. Aendees seeking to
 judge which of the two top Bands have
the beer costumes on oer this year
will therefore be able to do so almost as
a controlled scienc experiment.
Rounding out the scheduled Launchesfor the top three Mas Bands will be theJamal Magloire led Toronto Revellers.
Magloire’s 2012 Presentaon Bolly
-
wood: Lights, Camera, Acon having
been the major disappointment thatit was, he will be keen to re-establish
his credenals as a contender for thecoveted 2013 Band of the Year tle.
Mas Never Dies will be TorontoRevellers’ 2013 theme. Their Launch isscheduled for May 11 at its customaryvenue, the Victoria Park, ScarbroughArmenian Community Centre.With four of the top six having theirlaunches scheduled to be completedby the middle of May, the remain-
ing compeng Bands would be well
advised to also get their acts in gear.
Otherwise they could well nd them
-selves struggling to make an impact,amongst masqueraders who havealready decided who they will be mak-ing mas with on Lakeshore Blvd comeAugust 3.

Encouraged by the success of theirannual Last Lap Lime event, a collab-orative effort over the last 17 years,the alumni associations of Bishops’
High School, St.Joseph’s High School,St.Rose’s High School, St. Stanislaus
College and Queen’s College (Guyanesesecondary institutions) are partner-ing once more to collectively addressthe common challenge of membershipgrowth and increased involvement byalumni. The Associationshave embarked on several joint strategies to meetthis challenge.New members to the As-
sociaons will become part of 
the networks of friendship andpersonal support and join the
eorts of fellow alumni in “giving
back” to their alma maters, helping
to make a dierence in the lives
of the children of Guyana. Alumninewcomers to Canada will fur-
ther benet from interacng withprofessional alumni who can oeradvice on selement, the job mar
-ket, employment and networking
opportunies.
Over the last 20 and more years, these
ve Associaons have made invalu
-
able contribuons to their alma matersto ensure the connuaon of the high
standards of excellence for which theyare renowned. Many forms of assistance
have been provided; e.g. educaonal
books, computers, audio and musicalequipment, classroom furniture, men-toring and personal support programs.
Some of the Associaons also oer
scholarships and bursaries for childrenand grandchildren of their alumni whoare undertaking post-secondary educa-
on in Canadian and similar instuonsin other countries. In addion, the Asso
-
ciaons make annual nancial donaonsto Canadian charies.
The combined dollar value of theircontributions to their alma materssince they were established totalapproximately 1.4 million Canadiandollars from revenue derived fromfundraising activities.
