The 2012 Clan Henderson AGM Will Be Held in Richmond, VA
Leon Hicks, SE Regional Commissioner
The Central Virginia Celtic Festival and Highland Games will be returning to the old venue, the Richmond Raceway Complex. Mark your calendars, the dates are 20-21 October. This is, of course, a change from the Meadow Event Park near the King’s Dominion Park. This year’s event is under new management and promises to be another exciting festival.
This year the mid-east region will be hosting the Annual General Meeting (AGM). We are expecting a large turnout of Clan Henderson members. Hopefully you and your friends will plan to join us there. An unfortunate aspect to this event is that it occurs at the same time as the Stone Mountain festival. Those of you who live somewhere in between the two locations will have a hard decision to make as both are extremely worthy of your support. Hopefully Clan Henderson will be present in large numbers at both.
Christian Garin will be the principal convenor for this event, but we hope that all who are planning to attend will be there early to help set up, and remain late to help take down. Setting up for an AGM can be quite a daunting task. This is also a request for the mid-east region bodyguard to show-up enforce to support this event. If you have questions, I can be contacted at 703-989-1809 (cell).
President Larry, in his letter in the Summer An Canach tells us about the clan activities.
Annual General Meeting is rapidly approaching and I want to encourage all of you to attend. We have a block of 15 rooms held for Clan members at the Hampton Inn, 1-804-226-1888. Mention Clan Henderson, and rate of $79.00 plus tax. Reservations must be made by 1 October. They will have a few rooms set aside for Sunday as well if someone cares to stay longer. The Executive Board meeting will be held at the hotel on Friday 19 October at 5:00 p.m.
The clan meeting will be held Saturday at approximately 2:00 p.m. Whether or not you have been to an AGM before this would be an opportunity for you to meet the Board and express your opinions and give suggestions about the operation of the Clan. It is also a great opportunity for the board members to meet you and your family.
The event is coming and it is important for the organizing committee, important for the Clan Henderson Society, and important for each of us to plan to be there,
Make your travel plans and hotel arrangements now. Once you do, please let Mark Henderson, our membership secretary, know when you will arrive and where you have reservations.
Mark Henderson will keep important event information posted on our web site, www.clanhendersonsociety.org right through the event weekend.
