KOOREY REUNION 1981

BESKINTA, among the olive groves, with the LEBANON MOUNTAINS in the background

DUE TO TURKISH OPPRESSION OF THE CHRISTIAN MINORITY.

BACK IN THE 1800’s, THREE BROTHERS AND A SISTER LEFT THEIR HOMELAND IN THE LEBANON, TO TRY AND FIND A NEW LIFE IN A NEW COUNTRY. THAT COUNTRY WAS TO BE NEW ZEALAND AND WE, WHO ARE GATHERED HERE TO-DAY, HAVE COME TOGETHER TO HONOUR THEIR MEMORY AND SPEND THIS TIME IN CONVIVIAL COMRADESHIP.

WE, IN WANGANUI, EXTEND A VERY HEARTY AND SINCERE WELCOME TO YOU ALL, AND TRUST YOU WILL TAKE ANAY WITH YOU ONLY HAPPY MEMORIES OF THIS REUNION.

BESKINTA..
Relative’s house visited by Patrick Koorey during World War II.
