If your Club would like a display in the House of Friendship, please let me know.  You will have a 6' or 8' skirted table.  If you just need a small space, we are asking you to share a table with another club.  We would like everyone set up by 10am on Friday morning and you can tear down after 4pm Saturday.
Again, if you would like to display your club's project or have any questions please contact me, Ginger Leavitt, vleavitt2336@gmail.com, 520.971.6963. Space is limited.
Gift Baskets for Silent Auction.
Does your Region (or Club) have something special they want to share to help the District defray the cost of our youth attending the conference?  Last year we had a silent auction of gift baskets from Clubs/Regions that netted just under $3,000.00.  If you wish to help, please contact your Region Assistant Governor for more details
