Here is a splendid message. I am determined to go - do join me!
Hello all Carden kith and kin. A Carden Gathering is being planned for 13, 14, and 15 September 2013 in Hampton, Virginia, USA. This will be the fifth anniversary of the very successful 2008 Carden Gathering in Brighton, England. Those who were present or read the Gathering Report will recall that 150 family members from around the world attended, countries represented included Argentina, Australia, Canada, England, Ireland, New Zealand, USA, and Wales.
This advance notice will allow those of you who wish to do so plan extended vacations in the nearby Historic Triangle of Virginia; Williamsburg, Yorktown, and Jamestown, or other points in the USA.
Please reply to Cardengathering13@gmail.com by 01 April 2013 as to whether or not you are likely to attend, if attending include the name of head of your party and the total number of people in your party. This will allow us to keep you informed of happenings and provide numbers to determine conference room size, how large a block of hotel rooms to book, and how many people to cater for. Feel free to forward this message to anyone you think may have an interest in attending.
