It is hard to believe but several big holidays will be upon us before you can say 2015. Adjutant Dave has already begun some preliminary work for our Mid-Year Conference which is being held January 16-19, 2015 in Norfolk at the Norfolk Lodge. National will be teaching more “LEAD” training topics as they did at our past Mid-Year in Kearney. You can expect to hear much more in the upcoming months - just click on our Meetings page to find out more information. I hope to see lots of new faces in Norfolk. The conference is sure to be informative and fun!
