Here are highlights from last year's convention:
Dixie and Dennis Brunner hosted the event this year in their beautiful city of Kanab.
On Friday night we had a wonderful catered dinner at their lovely home. The weather was perfect and the view couldn't have been more grand.
On Saturday we all ventured off to different activities during the day. Some of us rented ATV's and took an adventurous ride up Hogg's Canyon. Dixie and Dennis have a Rhino and offered to be our tour guides. The trails were fun, exciting and the scenery was beautiful. We stopped for refreshments a time or two and to take in the view. Dick and Sue Buys and their family went to Lake Powell to try out their new wave runners.
Many of the members went to the Animal Rescue Sanctuary and really enjoyed the visit.
The Saturday evening event was a cook out and interactive show at Frontier Movie Town. We all participated in the show dressed in the appropriate frontier attire for our part. It was a fun evening with great food and company.
As you can see from the photos...a good time was had by all!
Many thanks to Dixie and Dennis for their time and efforts to make sure this was one of our best Summer Conventions yet... they certainly succeeded in doing so!
