Another Great Conference in Mountain View
We gathered for the 2016 Fall Conference at the Ozark Folk Center in Mountain View again. Our special guests this year included Dr. Larry Connor and Dr. Diana Sammataro among others. We all enjoyed their presentations, full of knowledge and good humor. We also welcomed some new officers and bid farewell to Linda Rhein, who served as our secretary and treasurer for many year. Thanks Linda!
