Saturday evening featured our Newcomer’s Reception and the Salted, Smoked and Pickled Reception. The building that housed the event is a replica of the West Virginia building at the world’s fair. Neat architecture. Wonderful murals. We enjoyed a visit from Gen. Jackson (this was his boyhood home- not birthplace). The highlight, as always, was meeting new professional colleagues and renewing friendships with long-time friends.
