Convention Closed: The Banquet

Last night was the end of the 60th Biennial International Convention in San Diego, Ca. It's been a long week of hard work by staff and delegates alike, but it was also a very fruitful week. As we mentioned earlier, delegates discussed and voted on a number of important issues, helping chart the course of our beloved organization for the future.

Saturday night's closing ceremonies were a great time for all. First there was a sumptuous banquet, followed by an awards ceremony that acknowledged the hard work of many lodges and members. Here are just a few photos from the night.
