Celebrating 75 years of State Gatherings

Just a quick pic of the great turnout we had for our 2024 Diamond Jubilee convention in Coring NY as we celebrated eachother to “Relax and Rejuvenate to be Strong and Courageous.” In reviewing our survey, it was a huge success and are already thinking about 2025, and how to improve on the experience for next year.
