Yes GYRabbits, the events of the past week have been but a hiccup in the history of the Association. We were all heart sick to learn of the resignation of Terry Thornton, our founder, but encouraged that he has accepted the position of Graveyard Rabbit Emeritus. We can not thank him enough for his creation. We also can not, should not, turn tail on an Association that, through Terry's efforts, we've come to love and promote.
There have been many messages concerning the direction the Association was heading. To a rabbit this is how most of you felt...
I have no interest in going to meetings, writing white papers or being on committees; We have taken a casual association too seriously; I did not join a 'political' organization; I thought it was rather pure and wonderful; I don't understand the need for membership dues.
We heard you, loud and clear. And we ask you to please
The original concept is alive, well and again beating in the heart of this Association. We Graveyard Rabbits need to stick together - stand with and for each other - support and encourage one another. This is what Graveyard Rabbits do best.
The Association is not going anywhere near the "formal organization" arena anytime soon. No membership dues, no national meetings, no committees; we intend to remain a completely online endeavor. And with your cooperation we hope to be the best online association EVER!
The day to day chores are being shared. All those things you've come to expect as a member of the GYRabbits will remain. Below is a list of members who have volunteered for many of the existing features of the Association Blog.
