District Conference "The Best Ever!"

Representatives of SGR, along with members from 46 other Utah clubs, attended the amazing, inspirational, motivational Utah District Conference in Ogden on the weekend of May 3-5, 2013.  Considered “perhaps the best conference ever” by those in attendance – including Linda Baker, Jim Coleman, Gil Trujillo, Durant McArthur and Linda Sappington – the gathering included outstanding speakers and well-planned break-out sessions at the Eccles Conference Center and an impressive interfaith service at Peery’s Egyptian Theater, all under the direction of conference chairman Brent Parkin (Ogden Club) and District Governor Jerry Summerhays (Murray Rotary).

Those outstanding speakers included Past RI President Bill Boyd (Australia), RI President's Representative Jeffry Cadorette, Katie Ehlis (in the blogmaster's opinion "the BEST presenter of the BEST conference ever"), Jana Farr Scott and Brian Farr, father-daughter Peace Fellow Team and District Peace Chair with entertainment provided by David Osmond (2nd Generation) and the One Voice Childrens Choir! 

Also attending, at least a portion of the conference, were Dan Strobell, Nick Lang, Reed Noble and Lowry Snow.

Next year’s conference will be held May 15-17, 2014 in Logan.  Plan to enjoy this wonderful experience.
