118th Kalloch Reunion Minutes - 1985

(Transcribed from the original typewritten copy.)

The 118th Kalloch Reunion was held at the Fish & Game Lodge on Alford Lake in Hope, Maine.  There were 72 registered.  Each one brought their lunch and extras to share with others who couldn’t bring a lunch.  From all appearances there was plenty.

Pres. Dean Mayhew presided at the meeting.  The secretaries and treasurers reports were read and accepted.  The following nominating committee was appointed by Dean Mayhew: Leola Robinson, Doris Merriam, Craig Kalloch, Fred Kalloch and Peter Richardson.

The President closed with a poem “Our Ancestors”, also comments on what he has done and hopes to do on genealogy.  In looking back the big problem the past 200 years is the identity of the original man Kalloch.  The meeting was closed followed by more genealogy data by Peter Richardson, historian.  These reports are on tape if anyone is interested in copying any of them.  Peter’s pictures and records were available as usual to be checked and added to.

Hazel Hills Sec.
