Our 2018 conference is now history.  We have put together this video to help us remember this year’s event.  We are already thinking about how to make our conference even better in 2020.  Plan to join us in Altenburg next time.

The music in this video is titled, “The Unstrung Harp”, a song written and performed by Dr. Steve Jordan especially for our conference.

Check in at the Museum Lobby 75 Church St., Altenburg, MO  Nov. 25, 8:00 a.m.
