After spending a couple of days in Nauvoo with friends, I am now checked into the President Abraham Lincoln Hotel & Conference Center. In a few minutes I’ll be joining an old friend for dinner; we’ll probably miss the opening reception, but the opening plenary address is at 8:00 p.m. in the ballroom.
As I was walking in, I saw Molly B., who was on her way to tour the Abraham Lincoln home (I’ve been through it twice; it’s a good tour). I also saw Glen Leonard and his wife wandering around, and said “hi” to Ron Romig. Most of the sessions will be held on the lower level of the conference facility next door, so I went over there just to get my bearings so I won’t get lost tomorrow.
Unfortunately, I’m going to miss Friday morning’s activities, as I have a Dialogue board meeting and then I’m committed to sit at the Dialogue table in the exhibition area after that. So I hope people will report on both the plenary session and whatever they attended for the following concurrent session.
OK, let’s have a good conference, and everyone please feel free to post your notes and observations here. I’m positive that our readers who are unable to attend this year will deeply appreciate it.
