Welcome to the Old Achimotan Association in the United Kingdom

 

REFLECTIONS FROM THE OAA-UK ANNUAL REUNION AND

GENERAL MEETING : APRIL 11 2015

AN “OLD HAND’S” HOPE FOR A NEW DAWN AND NEW

HORIZONS.

This year’s Annual Reunion and Annual General Meeting of Akoras in the  UK brought with it a mixture of trepidation, anxiety, relief and hope for me.

Trepidation arising from whether our return to our hosts for the event in the past 5 years would happen.

Anxiety because the response to my invitation to fellow Committee members’ views and suggestions for arrangements for the meeting were few, tardy and in some cases regrettably not forthcoming. My other concern was the poor response of RSVPs to indicate  people’s intent to attend, thus making planning for lunch especially stressful.

Relief because with the support of the few (and they know themselves)  concluding arrangements with the staff of Goodenough College, went smoothly and without a hitch. I owe a great deal to the goodwill of our friend Michelle Senyah, of the hospitality department, and the outgoing Dean, Roger Llewellyn, during the years of our association with the College. Indeed a further contribution to my relief was the moderate cost at which lunch was provided.

Hope because the outcome of the elections held at the meeting reflected and  encapsulates my aspiration and belief that the Old Achimotan Association is and ought to be a trans-generational fraternity of Alumni, bound together by one ideal: pride in our alma Mater and the prime object working together to keep the School alive and strong in a context of fellowship and continuing and renewed friendships..
