The 2010 District 5400 Conference held May 21st and 22nd at The Sun Valley Lodge was a well attended affair. There were more registered participants than in many years passed and folks from as far away as Ecuador, Nigeria and Brazil were at hand. The Hailey club hosted a GSE reception the night before at the Sweetwater Grange and over 100 folks turned out from up and down the valley.

If you missed it this year, be sure to join us next year!
