Note: His Majesty King Bhumibol Adulyadej passed away on October 13, 2016. A nationwide period of mourning was declared throughout Thailand to last for 30 days. Thus this celebration had to be toned down to be appropriate during those days of nationwide mourning. People were asked to dress in "black" during the period of mourning.
Note: The anniversary activities were held at the Chaengwattana Meetinghouse, the largest church owned chapel in Thailand and home to the Bangkok North stake.
Note: Additional contributions to the story of the 50th anniversary are welcome, Please send them to the webmaster.
