Look up Deedy in Websters Dictionary and you will see the following definition - \Deed"y\, a. Industrious; active. [R.] --Cowper. But to me Deedy is simply my last name and not a very common one at that. My Father always said "find yourself in a strange city? Open a phone book, find a Deedy and give them a call - chances are they are a relative." So, for all the Deedy's out there hello and welcome.

Gathering Update

The reply cards have been flowing in all week. As you can see on the sidebar of this website, I have a confirmed head count of 47 (based solely on the number reported in reply cards) as of Sunday, July 27. I know from emails that more of you are planning on attending, so I assume this number will continue to rise over the next few weeks. Based on my preliminary count and guessing at some additional numbers based on email reports, I provided an initial headcount of 56 to the DCU center on July 15th (when I sent in the payment for the room rental). They in turn provided me with the above diagram of how the room will be laid out (you can click on image to see larger).

My next deadline for the DCU center is August 18th, when I need to send in my deposit for the buffet. I can continue to add people up until about Sept. 1 when I really have to lock in the room count and send in the final payment for the buffet.

If at some point the headcount rises so much that we have to move to a larger room, that is fine - I would just hope we can get that settled sooner rather than later. So if you are still waiting to return your reply card because you are not yet sure if you can come - you still have time. Just please try to get it back to me before August 15 if possible.

I chose the "Saratoga" brunch package, since I felt it had the best selection to appeal to both kids as well as adults. If anyone feels that it is lacking something let me know, I can add to the selection if needed.
