Gordon's Crow About Success 2007!
Congratulations to Aaron Todd who received a Meritorious Award for Community Service
from the Marine Corps League
in June 2007. Aaron donated his time and talent to pipe for
several charitable concerns including the Army Transportation Corps, The Henrico County

Prayer Vigil for VT, and many more.


The House of Gordon, Virginia received the
BEST CLAN TENT Award at the Potomac
Celtic Festival in Leesburg, VA on June 9,
2007.
 Our Wall of Honor and Time line wall
were huge hits at the festival. We had much
interest on the various branches of the
Gordon Clan around the world, especially
the Russian Branch and had one lady who
discovered her Scottish roots via Russia at
our tent that day!




We were blessed to have three young men volunteer their
time to assist us with tent set-up, take-down and more.
Thanks to Jake Kite, Aaron Todd, & William San Soucie
for all their help!  Thanks especially to Aaron Todd whose
piping brought many visitors to the tent!
