On the third Sunday in October, as in many years past, the Annual Gaither Reunion was held at Clarksbury United Methodist Church Fellowship Hall, Harmony, NC. This date was selected many years ago because Elizabeth Nichols Gaither (more affectionately called Lizzie), the Mother, Grandmother and Great Grandmother of most of the attendees was born on October 23rd and this occasion also served to celebrate her birthday. Lizzie was married to Alexander Milton Gaither whose parents were Noah Spurgeon Gaither and Temperance Virginia Dayvault.
The occasion is always a lot of fun, fellowship and good eating as everyone brings a covered dish lunch. Approximately 50 people were in attendance. It’s always good to catch up with everyone and to get acquainted with the new arrivals in the family.
If you’re ever in North Carolina on the 3rd Sunday in October and want to join us, please come on down, over or up to see us. We always welcome family and close friends.
