It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of one of our great board members John B. Gladitsch. John joined the GHGA Board of Directors in 2003 and served on the board until his passing. Through out his years on the board he contributed with his many photographs and videos of Gottscheer events, his liaison between European clubs, and with his translation of many articles. John’s zest for life and his amazing personality will be missed and we send condolences to his family. Please read his obituary for more information.
