On June 15, 2012 members of the Greystone Circle, a society that honours individuals for their current and future support of the University of Saskatchewan, took part in an appreciation event entitled Springtime Melodies. Guests were treated to an afternoon of music by the Saskatchewan Brass, led by Dean McNeill. The event was held in Convocation Hall located in the historic College Building, recently renamed the President MacKinnon Building to honour the outgoing U of S president. U of S Board of Governor Chair Nancy Hopkins had just made the naming announcement the evening before on June 14, 2012 at a special dinner to honour MacKinnon who will step down as U of S president on June 30, 2012. Springtime Melodies was the first event held in the newly named space.
