COME TO EXCELSIOR SPRINGS IN OCTOBER!
By Donna Haines, ARMSS Conference Chair
Marvin Simmers and I have planned what we think will be another great conference. Our theme is Come ‘B’ Refreshed and we can’t think of a better place to hold this conference than at The Elms Hotel and Spa in Excelsior Springs, Missouri. There will be lots of opportunities to “B Refreshed” as we bring to you another dynamic keynoter, Nancy Copeland-Payton. Her keynote addresses will be entitled Coming Into Wholeness: The Incredible Journey of the Second Half of Life. She is an author, spiritual teacher, presenter, retreat leader, wife, mother and grandmother. Do come, as you will be refreshed. We’ve also planned a host of workshops again and two interesting tours.
The conference fulfills several needs in my life. I enjoy the mental stimulation provided by speakers, workshops and tours. BUT, and equally important, I enjoy seeing all of you once more. It’s kind of my faith-family reunion. The conference proves to be exciting, uplifting and refreshing. It is my prayer that you will choose to journey to Missouri in October and join us at The Elms Hotel and Spa. I will be there looking for you!
CONFERENCE EARLY BIRD SPECIAL ENDS SOON
For the first time we are offering an Early Bird Special for anyone that registers for the Conference before August 27. With the August deadline rapidly approaching, we encourage you to act now and take advantage of the discounted Early Bird Special. It really is true what they say, “the early bird catches the worm!” (or in this case the savings!) And if you are an ARMSS member, attending the conference for the very first time, continue reading for even better deals!
CONFERENCE SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE
By Dennis Haines, ARMSS Finance Chair
In baseball you hear “Play Ball” to begin the game. You are reminded at the very beginning that this is a game you are to enjoy. So I am convinced that our golf at the beginning of our conference will be such a time. We will enjoy the game even if it is NOT at a professional level. Playing with a “Best Ball” format, everyone will be able to contribute. SO plan to come and enjoy and help us raise capital for our John Rhea Scholarship Fund. This is a win – win situation so I will anticipate that all golfers will come early and join me at the Excelsior Springs Country Club Tuesday at 10:00.
