We have been contacting many of our members who need to renew to activate their memberships. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT WE DON'T SEND OUR QUARTERLY NEWSLETTER TO YOU UNLESS YOU ARE AN ACTIVE MEMBER. Our newsletter is very informative and keeps you updated on the happenings in our Clan Forrester family. If you know someone who needs to renew their membership that expired December 31, 2016, please encourage them to renew. It has been an exciting first quarter with many renewals and new members, but we need others to renew and more new members to increase our membership.
The Highland Games have started for the 2017 season. Loch Norman games were April 7-9. We have representation/tents at many of the games over the USA. Our council attends five of the games (Central Florida, Loch Norman, Blairsville, Grandfather Mountain and Stone Mountain) each year with tent representation. Our Florida Commissioner and council member, Nina Ford, added another Florida game last year to her schedule - Mt. Dora Games. Our Idaho Commissioner, Vandye Forrester, also has tent representation at two Idaho games - Treasure Valley and Nampa. We are now planning for Blairsville Highland Games the weekend of June 9-10 in Blairsville, GA. We will be going to Grandfather Mountain in July and Stone Mountain in October. Please try to attend our games. If you need more information of a game event closer to you, please contact us.
The DNA project for our Forrester (all spellings) family is getting to be very exciting. Many new "doors" are being opened to our ancestry lines. Please consider participating in this project. All male descendants are needed to help in this area. Contact our DNA Coordinator, Nathan Forrister, for more information at email@example.com.
Many of you have expressed a desire to be more involved with our Clan family. WOW! This would be wonderful! Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know how you would like to serve. We are open to any new ideas that you might have.
Thank you so much for your support to our Clan Forrester family.
