LOOK WHO CAME TO VISIT!

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.
This photo was taken at Stampede 66 by Stephan Pyles in Dallas, Texas.

Dear Friends and Fellow AES Alumni,
It is with great regret that I write this little note to let you know that Nicolas Broun, a 2008 AES high school graduate, passed away Monday morning in his home in France. I'll always remember Nicolas as a friend and fellow European, someone who loved theater, being active and outdoors, who was always ready to lend an ear when you had a story to share or were in need of some advice and support.
The funeral will likely be held next Monday or Tuesday, though details have not yet been finalized. In the meantime, feel free to reach out to his sister Nathalie if you'd like to pass a message directly to Nicolas' family.
Warmest regards, Geoffroy Bablon, Class of 2007

DELHI WALLA CHRONICLES #4
by Jeff Myers, Class of 1962
posted 22 September 2014
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.
It was another awesome picnic hosted by Anne Beattie Kerr (Class of 1967) and her husband, Tim! There were new attendees, several Indian dishes (as well as hamburgers and sausages), lots of side dishes and desserts, plus perfect weather! We had the best time!! Thank you, Anne and Tim, for always hosting the annual picnics.
