Aug. 27, 1983 - 116th Kalloch Reunion

The 116th Kalloch Family Reunion was held with Capt. Craig and Lynn Kalloch in Searsmont with 90 registered.

All enjoyed a delicious dinner of chicken barbeque, steamed clams, salads and dessert.

Pres. Craig Kalloch opened the meeting with roll call.  Sec. & treas. reports were read and accepted.
The same nominating committee was appointed as follows: Leola Robinson, Colby Kalloch, Glennys Gross, Dean Mayhew, and William Morgan. Craig called for volunteers for vice president.  Peter Richardson recommended we have two vice pres, delegating one to carry on with some of the preparations thus preparing them for the office of president.  Craig said he would turn the responsibility over to them and handle the meetings when and if he was here. 

Arrangements for the 1984 reunion will be made later and reported in the news letter.  Craig & Lynn may be moving to Round Pond and would not be sure of being able to have the reunion.  Craig stated it might be possible to have us at Round Pond if they move and could get someone to cater the lunch.

Dean Mayhew is continuing research on the Kalloch background and anticipates going to England.  The research will be expensive.  A motion was made to put $150.00 more in the Historian Fund to be available for Dean and Peter for expenses in their extensive work.  Peter gave us more data on the genealogy.  Also spoke of comparing Judge Gould’s records with Bertha Drewett’s which were very accurate, also with Eaton’s Annals.  Judge Gould, Bertha Drewett, Peter Richardson and Dean Mayhew have and are combining a fabulous record of the Kalloch Family.

Beginning with 1980 all business meetings and are on cassette tape and are available to be copy.  Also there Is a tape of Dean Mayhews on family history.

Peter spoke of meeting with Harold Kalloch of Vancouver, Canada when he was out west on a seminar.  Harold and wife were at a reunion when we met at Crescent Beach in 1974.  They came a distance of 4500 miles just for the reunion, mainly because he is on research for a book he wants to write up of the Kalloch Family.  Read the 1974 records.

Peter gave a lot more interesting data which is on the tape - much too long for this report.

Voted to adjourn.

Hazel Hills Sec.
