Greetings from the President's desk and hey to all my Gaither cousins! I do hope each of you had a wonderful Christmas and I wish for you and your family a Happy and Prosperous New Year.
Now is the time for plans to be firmed up for 2013. As you may already know, Mack and Rebecca Gaither, are very busy planning our reunion in the Nation's Capital, Washington, D.C. I will not elaborate as the details appear elsewhere on this site, however I encourage each of you to make plans to attend! There will be lots of events, things to see & do, information and round table discussions for everyone.
As with many organizations, membership is on the decline, attendance is lacking because of the events we compete with. An old gentleman once told me, if you really want to go fishing, you will "find" the time and you will "find" the money for the bait & beer. We need to attend these reunions and bring the young ones with us! Now, if anyone out there is interested in hosting or assisting with the 2014 reunion, please, let me know!
DNA is "the talk of the town", more male participation, results in
greater line clarity, so please consider it.
Sandy and I look forward to seeing each of you in May; let's make 2013 the largest attendance ever at a Gaither Reunion. So, until we meet again, may the Good Lord take a like'n to you!
Johnny D. Gaither, President
Society of John Gaither Descendants
