CAHCF/CCAL – Annual Meeting

Regretfully, COVID-19 has caused us to cancel this year’s event.

Our 91st Annual Meeting will be held on Thursday, July 16, 2020.  The entire event will take place at Latitude 41 Restaurant and on the North Lawn of Mystic Seaport behind Latitude 41 Restaurant.  We WILL NOT be entering Mystic Seaport proper for any portion of our event.

Park in the Mystic Seaport North Lot across from Latitude 41 Restaurant; Registration opens at 9:30 AM behind Latitude 41 Restaurant.  Program begins promptly at 10:30 AM.

Morning program will be in its familiar location in the restaurant complex; luncheon and afternoon program will be under a REALLY BIG TENT on the North Lawn directly adjacent to the Latitude 41 Restaurant and Mystic River.  We think that you’ll love it!  Fabulous views; no long walks!

You were there, weren’t you?  Thursday, July 11, 2019.

It was lovely on the water with a slight breeze, and it did not rain!  Our morning presenter, Jason Kotecki, was fabulous; the Buffet Luncheon with New England CHOWDAH was superb; our special award winners are exceptional leaders; VAMSF Scholarship Recipients and Volunteer-of-the-year Award Winners were ALL well-deserved; AHCA/NCAL Bronze Quality Award and Silver 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.
