Closing Remarks I would like to end by acknowledging the foundations laid by Lewis way back in 1958. I hope he is proud to see how his child has matured in the past 50 years! I would also like to publically recognize the enormous benefit we have derived from having key national figures to take us forward from where Lewis left off. I am referring of course to Daphne Jackson and Bill Gelletly. I hope you will join me in offering them a round of applause.
