Message From the State President

I am still in aww of my Grand Council and all the Delegates that attended our 85th Convention.

Ordinarily, our editor, Andy Pampuro, would write his synopsis of our Convention to go with the pictures he took. This year he was unable to do that, so Arlene Nunziati took all of the pictures, and I was drafted to do the synopsis. Thank you Arlene. I hope we did the Convention justice.

I want to thank all the Officers, Committee Chairs
