"Our humble founder and
president, Christopher Roberson has spent several years collecting
photography, anecdotes, artifacts, memorabilia and testimonials
from former Athlone staff, alumni and their families to complete
his book, "In Search of Athlone."
This remarkable work captures the spirit and richly collegial atmosphere
that was uniquely Athlone. Christopher's spectacular treatise entitled
"In Search of Athlone." Is not for sale separately. Rather, it is
complimentary with each new membership to the Athlone Old Boys'
Society, which requires an initial dues payment of only $100. Shipping
within North America is an additional $13 per copy. Cheques or Money
orders are to be made out to the "Athlone Old Boys Society." Memberships
and consequent copies of the book are available from the author,
Christopher Robertson or Peter Lefeaux, the treasurer as detailed
below. Membership application forms can also be downloaded here".
Now formally scheduled for release, October 30, 2009
IN SEARCH OF ATHLONE, Volume 2 will be much like the first Athlone
book but with all new material. Like Volume 1, the second Athlone
book will feature 3 complete Athlonian year books, countless as
yet to be seen photos, the
one and only Athlone Brochure, a letter from the office of Col.
Parker, Chapters by Headmaster Creek and the late Mr. Alex Strain
of Athlone PE fame and recipes from the Athlone Cook Book and
much, much more. These two volumes will be in turn followed by
a Compendium Third Volume Index, that will feature any odds and
ends that the other two books have missed along with a complete
listing for the two previous books.
