State MG Conference is here!

May 28, 2014

Rain was forecast for today and I left LR early under cloudy skies. I arrived in Texarkana, and rain looked likely, but the sun was out by the afternoon and it was a glorious day. 51 MGs left Texarkana mid morning for a full day excursion to Howard and Hempstead county. They should be back in about an hour from now.

While they were out touring, volunteers were inside setting up. The trade show crew had to lay plastic to protect the carpet and put up tents.

Vendors started arriving and putting up their wares. There are some great items.

Goody bags were assembled by many willing hands and they are great.

Good signage is up all over the place and everyone is really working together to make this event sing! Chair Sue Ellen has done a great job

I did make a quick run this afternoon for a few items and took a sneak peek at tomorrows events. Make sure you don’t miss the pocket park. It is lovely and there will be entertainment as well.
