    I remember the 2010 meetings…it seems quite different this year…what a great experience for all and some encouragement to those who actualy live there when you,we have gone.All these pictures are great but they also make me a bit sad that we could not be there this year…I guess we should not feel that way…all things work together for good…and God willing there is always the coming year.I expect the days have flown by.Keep the information coming…God Bless you all.James and Gillian Pollock
