District 11 Conference

-

Due to the lingering uncertainty of gathering in a large group with COVID, we have changed the dates of our District Conference from June 27-30, 2021, to the dates of Aug. 29-Sept. 1, 2021. We hope that by August most of those who will be attending the Conference will be vaccinated and we can hold the conference safely.
