A Walk down Memory lane

IGeLU 2015 at Budapest marked the last year of Jirka Kende’s term as IGeLU Chair. In appreciation of all his various efforts in building a strong user community, the following song was played during the farewell , beautifully organized by the various members of the IGeLU community.

Below is a reproduction of that song as well as a selection of photos from his tenure starting from the ICAU days :)

Jirka Kende song

Jirka Kende is our chair
He’s the man who leads us fair
But the statutes are severe
His final term will end this year
That is why we sing goodbye
Though we rather want to cry
Maybe Jirka feels relieved
Knowing how much he has achieved

Jirka Kende, we will miss you so
We do thank you so, we do thank you so
Jirka Kende, we will miss you so
We do thank you so, we do thank you so

Every meeting he attends
He’s taking action to the end
Takes the lead to get results
Without reprimand or insults
When we meet en groupe online
We can all hear his voice so fine
That’s because he uses phone
No digital audio

Jirka Kende, we will miss you so
We do thank you so, we do thank you so
Jirka Kende, we will miss you so
We do thank you so, we do thank you so

Back in Stockholm it began
Guido asked him and so he ran
For the chair of IGeLU
Maybe just for a year or two
But it turned out to be nine
And he played his role so fine
Looking back to all these years
It’s only logical we cry out cheers

Jirka Kende, we will miss you so
We do thank you so, we do thank you so
Jirka Kende, we will miss you so
We do thank you so, we do thank you so

From Brno to Helsinki
Haifa, Zurich and Berlin
It has to end in Budapest
A day or two and you’ll get rest
But we promise IGeLU
Will so vitally  continue
Just as active as always
Like we used to in those days

Jirka Kende, we will miss you so
We do thank you so, we do thank you so
Jirka Kende, we will miss you so
We do thank you so, we do thank you so

As our chair he’s always kind
Keeps his officers in his mind
Always thanking everyone
For activities they have done
Now it’s time for us to show
Our gratitude, we owe him so
And so Jirka we would like
To make you Honorary chair for life

Jirka Kende, we will miss you so
We do thank you so, we do thank you so
Jirka Kende, we will miss you so
We do thank you so, we do thank you so
