(Transcribed from the original handwritten copy.)
The 119th Kalloch Reunion was held August 23, 1986 at Beaver Lodge, Union, Maine. It was a cool day with a small attendance.
After having our picnic lunches, we went inside for the meeting. President Dean Mayhew called the meeting to order. We heard the treasurers report with a balance of $546.67 on hand. The Sec. report was read.
It was suggested for next year that the nominating committee be appointed before lunch - so they can have time to find out who wants to be an officer.
Obituary report was
1. Rev. Arthur Olsen from California
2. Norman Millay, New York
3. Mona Richardson, Kennebunk, Maine
4. Doris King Morgan, Conn.
5. Frank DeSimone, Lincolnville.
