149th Kalloch Reunion Group Photo
The 149th Kalloch Family Reunion was held Saturday, August 20, 2016, at Jura Hall at the Finnish Congregation Church in South Thomaston, Maine.
The program this year focused on the restoration of Edna St. Vincent Millay’s birthplace in Rockland, ME
In recent years the house has suffered from neglect, and a front page article in the local newspaper detailed the plight of the building and its historic significance. Maine philanthropist Roxanne Quimby saw the article and, due to her interest in promoting heritage tourism in Maine, offered to help Rockland Historical Society purchase and restore the duplex. - Continue reading in our 2016 Kalloch Newsletter.

Annual Kalloch Family Reunion!
(the oldest continuous family reunion in America!?)
Saturday, August 19, 2017
at the Elks Hall in Rockland, a lovely, spacious building with plenty of room to run
around and play games outside. The Elks will provide a sumptuous luncheon.
Your Committee is hard at work planning special events to make this memorable
and we hope that if you are ever to attend a Kalloch Reunion it will be this one!
The Gilchrest-Robinson reunion pot-luck picnic was held at noon at the St. George Grange hall on Sunday, August 21, 2016. Next reunion will be on 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.
