It was a wonderful evening honoring AIS alumni and author, Betsy Woodman, Class of 1963...and getting to meet her and her sister, Lee, Class of 1965. Biggest surprise was being introduced to music teacher, Mrs. Charlene Perry Connell!

I thought this might interest our alumni. For several months, AES has been supporting efforts in Kashmir following horrific flooding. There have been donation drives for warm clothing, water purification supplies, oral rehydration salts, and other basic necessities.

Some of our high school students have also taken on fundraising efforts in support of a local school. You can read more about their efforts by clicking on the link below.

So on the first day of shooting our new AES promotional video, we
had a visitor to campus... Ken Torbett, Class of 1962. What a great opportunity! Ken was gracious enough to say a few words in front of the camera. We look forward to sharing the final film at the AIS/AES 2015 Reunion in July. (email dated 17 October 2014)

Hello to all my fellow alumni!

I moved last year into a community for older people and really like it. I think I am the youngest here, at 65.

I have been working on my photos and finally finished my book about my life overseas that took me four years of hard work and editing to get it done! Now, if I could just get it published. If anyone knows someone in publishing, I would like to get in touch with them.

Photo on your left of Tommy, Vicki, and George Noonan was taken very recently.
Tommy Noonan (AIS Class of 1964) passed away on 22 September 2014 in hospice, after a swift decline following a fall. He was 69. His health had been in decline for many years.

We have been overwhelmed by the kind notes and generous outreach from Tommy's friends around the world - including many from AIS including Bill Lanigan, Mark Isenberg, Susan Rosenfeld and their daughter Ayelet Girard.

American International School, New Delhi, is influential time and place for the Noonan family - with Tommy, George & Vicki all alumni - and remains so today. For this, we are ever grateful. And we very much enjoyed reading Tommy's senior page in the AIS '64 yearbook - if he's only channeled his gift for argument and debate into actually being a foreign service lawyer! His sly wit and acerbic humour certainly stuck with him throughout his life.

I had the pleasure of meeting fellow classmate, Musarrat Shomee Qureshi, today after 26 years. One simply started where one left off…and now with a shared nostalgia of banyan trees, Delhi traffic, a river of great childhood stories, and a friendship forged in common global experiences.

Class of 1962 Alumni

As a member of the original graduating class of 1962, (and lucky enough to have weathered 52 more years of the storms of life since then), I feel compelled to pen a report on some of the continued escapades and activities of the infamous group of AIS Alums who have dubbed themselves the "Delhi Wallas".

This will be the fourth (4th) in a Series which we affectionately call the "DELHI WALLA CHRONICLES." Read more from Jeff.
