Join us as we kick off the conference weekend with a night of food, folly and friends. We’ll get the evening started at 5:00pm with a welcome reception where contest participants and leadership candidates will meet and mingle with conference attendees.

The party starts in the Mardi Gras I room on the first floor of the Copeland Tower Conference Center, just past the conference registration tables. District 68 will provide hors d’oeuvres and a good time so all you’ll need to bring is cash for the bar (if your drinkin’) and a good attitude!

Looking for a good laugh? Plan to attend the district’s Humorous Speech contest finals beginning at 7:00pm.

As the contest comes to a close we’ll keep the party going with DJ Karaoke Clay. Come laugh, dance, sing, mingle, eat, drink and party with us as we “laissez les bon temps rouler”!
