The Seng Kur Lyngdoh Thabah Seng Kmie, in commemoration of its silver jubilee, will hold a gathering of all Thabah clan members on December 16 at the Jaiaw Lumpyllon Dorbar Community Hall from 10am onwards.
Announcing this, the Seng Kmie president, NR Thabah, said that the event will include several activities, such as introducing new members as well as enlightening clan members on the various activities of the Seng Kur Thabah and future plans.
“We warmly invite all Thabah clan members to converge on the said date and time so that together as a clan we can become stronger and larger in numbers,” the president said.
He also urged those using only Lyngdoh instead of Lyngdoh Thabah to revert to the age-old clan’s original name. “There are many Lyngdoh clans in the Khasi and Jaiñtia Hills, and hence it is wise to use the original title Thabah so mistakes can be avoided, especially in terms of understanding relations,” he stressed.
At the anniversary event, there will also be a felicitation of meritorious students from the clan as well as honouring senior members above the age of 85. Winners of the raffle ticket draw will be announced on the same day. The clan almanak for 2024 will also be released.
The clan anticipates close to 500 clan members from across the state to attend.
