                                  Chairman Dacre Mogg's report of 
                                                  Assam Reunion 2009

                                                          21st April 09

This year 80 attended the reunion and althought the numbers were down on previous years, mainly due to last minute cancellations, the day was most enjoyable. 

We were all delighted to see Holly Scallon back after two years absence due to ill health, looking well and in good form.

Dacre took the opportunity to ask everyone to join him in a vote of thanks to Mike and Cathy Courtney for all their efforts over the past nine years in successfully organising the functions.

Appreciation was also shown of the valued contributions made by David Air in maintaining the Koi-Hai website, Clive Roberson who keeps the Koi-Hai directory and publishes the newsletters and David Kincaid who spent most of the lunchtime taking photographs.

We were saddened to hear of the unexpected loss of Jean Dodwell, also Mary Stoneman, Matt Stuart and Barbara McCarthy. Our sympathy goes to their families.

Mention was made of the younger people who attended the gathering and the hope that this would be a continuing and growing feature of future reunions.

Sue Paisley with her husband Johnny having just returned from a trip to India spoke of their visit to Assam and displayed the photographs they had taken on a laptop computer.

David Charles Manners whose ancestor was one of the very early planters in Assam gave a short talk about his new novel "In The Shadow Of Crows" and his work with the charity Sarvashubhamkara from his home in Kalimpong where he spends half of each year.

The date for next year's reunion has been set for Tuesday 27th April 2010.
