You were there, weren’t you?

It was a PERFECT SUMMER DAY! Our morning presenter, Morris Morrison, was fabulous; the Buffet Luncheon with New England CHOWDAH was superb; our special award winners are exceptional leaders in our profession; VAMSF Scholarship Recipients and Volunteer-of-the-year Award Winners were ALL well-deserved; AHCA/NCAL Bronze Quality Award winners are leading the way; and, WOW, did we have some amazing raffle prizes! The day ended with Strawberry Shortcake Dessert and Cocktails.

We had a great crowd throughout the day, and would like to thank YOU, the Membership, for supporting CAHCF with your attendance.
