2016 was our 2nd time in the new venue and we are exceedingly happy with the facilities, the food, the very responsive staff and service! Our speakers were super, and the guests delightful. Drumming and Youth Dancers (arranged by our board member and Hannahville community Chief, Ken Meshigaud) were amazing. We had some interesting exhibits... and authors/speakers signed their books. Our guests were most generous in donations to AAPS Silent Auction, and folks enjoyed the slower pace, fewer speakers, and more time to visit and network. More reviews and lots of photos by Lee Pennington and others, can be seen on our Facebook page
