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.

2008 Gathering Recap

The September 7, 2008 Gathering of the McDonough's and Deedy's was a great success! I had a wonderful time meeting everyone. In fact I had too good of a time and forgot to take any pictures! Skip Roosevelt was kind enough to send me some of the photos he took of the day. But if others seeing this note have pictures please send them to me and I will add them to the 2008 Gathering Gallery. Update: Patty also sent me more photos which arrived today - Thank you Patty!

During the event we had six wonderful presentations. Many have asked for copies. Here are four of the six for you to read. I will work on getting the other two and post them once they are available.
