Following the decision to dissolve The Cory Society, it has been decided to form a new and informal group of Cory Family Friends. The raison d’etra for the Friends is purely as a social meeting of past members of the Cory Society, who have so much enjoyed the companionship of previous gatherings and wish to continue this camaraderie.
The aim of the group is to hold an annual social meeting at various locations, to be decided upon each year by that year’s organiser, to meet up, for a day or a weekend, either to continue meeting in June, or maybe September if it is more suitable to the group.
There will be no formal structure and no membership fees will be payable. This is not a research society nor will there be a committee. It is not intended to field requests for Cory Family information, there will be no newsletter, nor will there be any Cory books for sale. All communication will be by email to members who have expressed an interest in, and consented to, receiving information. An application form to join the Friends mailing list was enclosed in the August 2016 Newsletter, in which notice of the first gathering in 2017 at Northampton was included.
