    As I said on Facebook, the people made it really fun and memorable for me. SO much great conversation, cameraderie and just plain smart people telling me new things -- I SO love to learn! Nice to reconnect with some of you that I truly love and respect that I just don't get to see near enough. And, of course, George and Arlene, who totally blew my mind with not only a waycool (and unexpected) award, but with their plain ol' warmth, hospitality and kind words. You're officially adopted into my family. :D

    The compliments for a well organized & smooth running convention are pouring in. The speakers are receiving rave reviews. Bravo Ernie Whiteside, Tom Shellberg, Hal Downs & Andrew Franks. The secular vendors & presenters, Stu Chisholm (Godless Gunnies), Bria Cruthfield (Minority Atheists of Michigan), Chris Lindsay (Ann Arbor Science & Skeptics), Norm Cohen (NoCirc of Michigan) & Mark Shaberman (Co-Chair, Secular Coalition for Michigan) were well received.
    Awards were presented to Sydney Poirier, Barbara Lutz, Stu Chisholm & Tracey Martin was named Michigan Atheist of the Year.
    Speakers Reception Friday night & the ‘afterglow’ Saturday were remarkable.
    Many thanks to the hardworking crew: Alan Ardanowski, Mike Zindler, Sean Sherman, Marty Mair, George Shiffer, Dee Crowe - registration & Stu Chrisholm - D.J. at the both the convention and our ‘afterglow’.
    There is little doubt that Michigan Atheists 27th Annual State Convention was a huge hit. See you next year.
