VPP Convention

OK, so this took too long. Well, there was just TOO much going on. Vermont was my last state convention and what a great one it was! The Woodstock Inn was gorgeous and the weather was...well, cold!Yup, this is me looking like a nightclub diva! Bob was using his large format FILM camera. I wanted to make it special for him!

As always the print crew work until weeee hours (not!).

Rene and Joan Genest put on a great program AND show. When they got tired they handed the camera to Chris.

Walter VanDuzen also rocked the joint with his intense program!

Gillian loves to have her photo taken!

How cool to be there when the photo Donna took of my parents scored in the 90's!

Oh Don, you are so silly sometimes!

Bob Jenks' Studio is celebrating their 90th anniversary!

Welome on board to the new VPP officers. May the force be with you.
