APPEAL FROM THE TREASURER
Greetings, Kallochs! If you’re anything like I was when I first started attending the Kalloch Reunion, you may be wondering why we want your money. It’s a valid question, and here’s what I hope you will consider to be a valid answer: In short, ensuring that we continue our family legacy and preserve our history for the current and future generations is not free. We use our funds to pay for the cost of printing and mailing our annual newsletter. We have to pay for the use of the space, refreshments, and now a Zoom subscription for our gathering each year. Outside of our annual gathering, our funds go toward maintaining our family website, gravestone repair, and other miscellaneous expenses. We are an entirely non-profit organization, and all of our officers are unpaid volunteers. It is only through the generosity of donors like you that we are able to keep our family traditions alive.
I hope you will consider making a donation to our reunion association this year. For the first time, we will be offering a donate button on our website.
And as always, you will have the option to
mail a check or contribute in-person at the gathering. Many of you are
familiar with our tradition of passing around the
tin coffee pot to
collect donations at the reunion. As we have the opportunity to meet
safely in person once again, we will continue our tradition of “passing
the pot” that has been used to support the Kalloch Reunion for
generations. The other officers and I thank you very much in advance for
Paul Wilson, Treasurer
The Gilchrest-Robinson reunion pot-luck picnic will be held at noon at the St. George Grange hall on Sunday, August 16, 2020 (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. (With this year's Covid-19 precautions, I don't know if they are still meeting in person).
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.
