R.B. (Bob) Drummond
There will be a Memorial Service for the late R.B. (Bob) Drummond at the Christian Counselling Centre, 8 Coltman Road (off The Chase between Pendennis Road and Waller Avenue) on Saturday November, 22, 2008 at 10 am.
Tea will be served afterwards and it would be appreciated if you could bring
a small plate of eats or a packet of biscuits.
Bob died at home in Harare on 3 June 2008 of heart failure at the age of 84. He leaves a widow, Joan, daughters, Jean and Janet and grandsons Gavin andRyan, to whom we extend our sincere condolences.
Bob’s passing away leaves a huge gap in botanical knowledge throughout the region.

Bring a packed lunch and a chair.
