CTB – Convention Throw Back 2014 – from Kappa Province

WOW, what an experience that was!!  Linda Barnes received her 25 year recognition.  It was her FIRST International Convention and yes she caught a lot of flack over that however it was amazing as there were five Sisters from San Antonio, one from Hays and another from Wichita there to celebrate with her.  Some of us arrived Tuesday by car and apparently got to the hotel after the tornado passed through Northern Indiana.  We were fortunate that we only drove through rain and had no high winds or down pours.

The SPG business meetings were very interesting and we were especially impressed with the formality and precision in how they were conducted.  The Zeta Service was a beautiful ceremony and many commented on it being the most beautiful ever (very emotional).

We visited Founders’ Park, ate lunch there, had pictures taken on the Founders’ bench then wandered through the park.  Friday we went to the Beef & Boards Dinner Theatre to watch the Broadway Musical, Mary Poppins.  We did some shopping as there were several shops and restaurants within walking distance.  Saturday night’s dinner and skit performances were hilarious.  Then there was the drawing for the 50/50 and our very own Kathy Jacobs won more than $1,100.  We were so excited for her and she treated our group to a drink in the bar after the event.  Kathy had knee surgery seven weeks prior to convention and was running circles around some that were present.

It was most enjoyed meeting Facebook Sisters in person, all beautiful ladies! After Sunday’s events we packed up and headed for home.  This was one of the most wonderful experiences we’ve had and hope to attend more conventions in the future.  This was a very heartwarming experience “In the Heart of it All”.   Linda Barnes gives a big thanks to her C  hapter, Eta Omega, for making this possible.  Contributing Editors:  Linda Barnes, Eta Omega;  Kathy Jacobs, Mu Eta;  Peggy Benavides, Xi Sigma.
