Hello, To Our Kalloch Family from President Anita Fernald
Forgive me, but I am jumping right in to get us
up to speed on where we are at and what is up! As a courtesy to us, we will have
use of the Elks Club from 2pm - 5pm the day before our event for setting-up and
decorating in the specific areas for the different activities! And this year, we
need some strong helpers to bring in and set up heavy items and equipment; and
also Lighter Help Decorating with, flowers, streamers, and the like for tables!
(No Helium Balloons are Allowed.)
Physical Help will be setting up in the hall with Peter's Kalloch Genealogy Folders, and Pictures. And some strong arms for a table for the Copier for Peter and Ken, and tables for Ken! There are many separate areas with which to accommodate several activities including the Children's area and Face Painting and a place for a Photo Booth!
I (Anita) will be in Camden, at the Capt. Swift Inn from August 7th, through Monday, August 21st., which will give me a chance to scope out the Hall for Areas for each activity!

REGISTRATION & ORDER FORM (Print and mail to address at the bottom)
The Gilchrest-Robinson reunion pot-luck picnic will be held at noon at the St. George Grange hall on Sunday, August 20, 2017 (the day after the Kalloch Reunion). Bring food and come if you can. If you can't bring food simply come and socialize with your relatives. Get a copy of your family tree. No program is planned.
Many of us Kalloch's from the St. George, Maine area are related to the Gilchrest's and Robinson's. Finley's son Matthew married Moses Robinson's daughter, Margaret, so all Kalloch's from this branch are also Robinsons. There are also many other connections between our families.
