Ring 49 50th Anniversary
This certificate was presented by Les Wismer, I.B.M. TVP for Ontario at the time, to the members of I.B.M. Ring 49. On April 10th, 1947 (see our Charter) A Ring was formed for the second time in Hamilton Ontario Canada. Originally formed many years before as Ring 17, the number 17 was given up during the war years and issued finally to Toronto.
It took many years to pass before finally there was enough people and interest to form the Ring again and Ring 49 came together.
Gordon Precious is currently the only remaining living original charter member and is also our only Honorary member.
