Mini-gatherings in 2015

U Khin Maung Oo (Ivan Lee, M 69) invited several 69ers — Saya U Aung Myint (M 69), U Sein Tin (Omega, M 69). and I — to get together at his house in New Jersey and preferably plan for May-June of 2015. For personal reasons, U Aung Myint and U Sein Tin (who had visited him on previous occasions) could not make it to the 2015 mini-reunion. U Frederick Thetgyi not only joined the 2015 mini-reunion, but he also volunteered to drive most of the 1800+ mile trip in Ivan’s Mercedes.

Except for the rare occasion where his batteries went out (and had to be replaced), Fred took pictures at the mini-reunion and the trip. He would appear only in a fraction of the photos, when someone else (Ivan, a waiter, or a complete stranger) would offer to take the photo.

The photos can be grouped by location

  • New Jersey (main Host: Ivan (M 69),
    Other hosts : Saya U Soe Paing & Daw Saw Yu Tint)
  • Niagara Falls (on the way to Canada)
