EMAIL LETTER 17.06.2017
MEMORIAL LIST OF THOSE WHO HAVE PASSED ON
this year's AGM our Treasurer, David Aplin, read out the names of
many of those members who had died in the last two years and
announced that the Trustees were keen to make a complete list and to
find an appropriate way of recording their names and the year of
the last few weeks a draft list has been drawn up, unfortunately
growing as it is passed around. The attached list has around 200
names on it but we don't believe it is complete yet. The Society's
Journals and membership records have been studied but if the Society
isn't advised of a death we often don't know. Included in the 200 and
towards the end is a list of some 71 for whom we are either unsure or
simply don't know the year of their passing and, in one case, we cant
even remember his surname. Do you remember "Big Lew" (or
was it Lou?) who used to sit in the Booking Office selling
memberships in the late 1970's / early 1980's? What was his surname
and when did he die?
it is over to you - can you fill in any of the years of passing on
this draft list? Have we missed anyone out? Have we, somehow,
included anyone who is still with us? This is an important task that
isn't being rushed. We want to get it right, or as near correct as is
possible both for recent years but also for the earlier years, too.
Like Big Lew, there have been so many that have helped in our
development over the years and as we approach our 50th year we need
to remember them.
you look through the list can you please check that those listed
under years are under the correct year. We are pretty sure they are
but mistakes do creep in.
have been tasked by the Trustees to collate all your answers so
please send your information, updates, corrections, additions to me,
please, either at email@example.com or to firstname.lastname@example.org
- whichever you find easier. Please contact me even if you are unsure
as others may be able to corroborate or add more information. Before
I pass the list back to the Trustees I will circulate it again as it
is so important that we get this right.
look forward to hearing from you.
