Dear Jeremy,

Delighted to hear that you are visiting Sri Lanka.
I will speak with Warden & Sub Warden and arrange for you to visit College on the 26th.
Same day we will arrange the class get together for 2016 in the evening for a dinner outing.
You could contact Deepal (W D R De S) on 0727158368 or we could ask him to come for this dinner.
I am coping this mail to our class group so that they may get to know about your visit and also to keep the 26th evening free to meet with you. Full details of the dinner will be sent by separate mail.

best regards

Sriyan

Hi Sriyan & Ajith,
I would like to visit College, if it is at all possible, view the Boarding house and our old haunts. Will be in Colombo very briefly, so I have the 26th September as the date.
Would also like to drop in on Deepal (Bolaya) for a short visit if possible after that.
Will be grateful for any assistance in this regard.
Thank you,
Kind regards.
Jeremy

Default 14th Annual get together dinner on Monday the 26th September 2016 at the Rainbow Room

14th Annual get together dinner on Monday the 26th September 2016 at the Rainbow Room, GOH.



Dear Freshmen of '59,


14th Annual get together dinner on Monday the 26th September 2016 at the Rainbow Room, Grand Oriental Hotel (GOH) Colombo, Fort. commencing 7.00 P.M. in the company of Jeremy Hillman from New Zealand and the cost per head will be Rs 2000/=.

http://www.tyretracks.com/showthread.php?t=626

This years event will be in a separate hall, not a restaurant. Would like to appeal to all class mates to make an attempt to participate. Please try to bring someone who had not attended any of our dinners before. This will be the 14th consecutive year we are celebrating the class group gathering.Thanks to Niranjan and Lalith who started the class group reunion in 2003.The first reunion was held at the Mandarin Restaurant on 5th July 2003 with 33 participants.

It is fitting that we dedicate this years event to two of them.

For those who wish to take a drink, arrangements have been made for a few bottles of Whiskey & Wine to be brought in. Donors in this regard will be most welcome as we have nothing in stock at present. Beer & Soft drinks have to be purchased from the Hotel.

It is with great sadness we note that 37 of our classmates have departed from this world and would kindly request you to make full use of opportunities such as these to meetup with old friends.

We are coping this mail to our entire membership, so that any overseas member having plans of visiting Sri Lanka at this time, they could join. Please note this is our class get together and is for the Freshmen of '59 and those who were in the same classroom with a Freshmen of '59.

The cost will be collected on arrival. To make it affordable to everyone we have priced this Dinner at Rs 2000/= per head with the sincere wish that a large number would participate. In order to make this dinner a success please try to bring another classmate along with you as explained above and persuade those class mates with whom you are in touch to participate.

Dress smart casual. All payments to be handed over at the dinner.



Best regards,

Sriyan.
on behalf of The Thomian Freshmen of '59.

Dear Sriyan and Rama,

That was a magnificent effort:

The build up and planning is now such a well-rehearsed procedure but,
it would be correct and proper to note that Rome was not built in a
day. This level of social cohesion has been the result of many hours
of volunteer work by many good people. However, even like-minded
good people need a level of leadership that you have both consistently
provided.

The results of your kind and caring efforts will enrich the minds of
generations particularly the generations yet to come.

Please check the spellings once again for good order. For example
Hillman has two L's not one. I have corrected that but another look
cannot hurt.

I have not distributed this to anybody else save the two of you. In case
you wish me to make changes and I shall do so immediately.

I appreciated reviewing the pictures and adding the names. It is a new
standard that you have begun to set on the www. Hopefully, others will
choose to follow in your footsteps.

The PDF file in question has been attached.

Hi Guys,
A big thank you for an excellent night and a rekindling of memories that will stay with me all the way through.
Was great to catch up with mates I spent a good part of my formative years with, ones that we were fortunate enough to live through in an era that was second to none.
Ties one makes will always remain, strengthened more with each passing year.

Sriyan, thank you for all the hard work you put in to keep our group going and the help given me over my visit.
The same goes for GDV, who assisted me in arranging most of my visits to estates, enabling us to fulfil a yearning to revisit the core of our youth.
Thanks for the ride back too mate.
A big thank you to Arun too for felicitating me and keeping in regular contact, over the years. Was good to finally catch up.
Esto Perpetua.

Kind regards,
Jeremy
