We have started the building and the foundation is complete. The builders that were doing construction have asked if they could go to Dunrobin to help out. The Alumni feels that it is important that as many homes as possible be stabilized in Dunrobin. We will welcome them back when Dunrobin’s work is complete.
The new building is currently being built at the Lombardy Fairgrounds.
The motion to approve the building was voted on and approved at both the 2017 Reunion Annual General Meeting and at the Alumni Board Meeting on September 26th, 2017.
Donations are now being received; information on donating can be found to the left of this page. Your name will be listed on this page and on the donor wall upon the completion of the building. Charitable receipts will be issued for donations.
As noted above, the location of the building is on the Lombardy Fairgrounds in Lombardy, ON, the Lombardy Agricultural Society has graciously donated the land on which to erect the building. The fairgrounds are also the current location for our Annual Alumni Reunion.

The Kemptville College Alumni and North Grenville are disputing the ownership of many items from the College’s history. All class pictures are on the list. As board members of the Alumni of Kemptville College, we are asking our members to support and sign this petition and to include the year you graduated. The petition gives permission for your picture which is part of a class picture to be displayed at our historical building and not with North Grenville. The historical building is being built at the Lombardy Agricultural Fair Grounds.

We have been informed that for some years, the Royal Presidents were presented with canes.
Their name and year was engraved on the cane and given to them to thank them for the work accomplished at College Royal week end.
Pictured below is Dwight Karren (left) presenting the Royal President’s cane to Tom Fahey, President of the ‘72 Royal. The next picture shows the cane which is engraved with the name and date.
Do you know someone else that got a cane or did you get a cane yourself? If so please send a picture to the webmaster, email@example.com .
If you have a cane and would like to donate it to the new Alumni Historical Building, we will display it with your name and info.
