1st day of NARSOL conference, Friday night banquet great

After a very successful first conference day for NARSOL’S tenth annual conference in Independence, Ohio, attendees sat down to a wonderful meal at the Friday night fellowship banquet. Approximately 150 people were in attendance.

While dining, banquet guests were entertained by special music and NARSOL’s tenth anniversary slide show. The raffle was great fun.

As has become our custom, the end of the evening was dedicated to our awards ceremony.

Several key NARSOL individuals were recognized with Pearl certificates.

NARSOL’s 2018 Advocate of the Year award was presented to Fred A. and was received by Brenda Jones, NARSOL’s ED, on his behalf.  NARSOL also presented its most prestigious Hawthorne Award to the ACLU of Michigan, which was received on its behalf by Tim P.  NARSOL’s Lifetime Achievement award was presented to Larry Neely, treasurer for both NARSOL and Vivante Espero.

NARSOL will present the Braveheart Award to documentarian David Feige at its Saturday night anniversary celebration.

The conference started up bright and early Saturday morning with speakers, presentations, and workshops. Video will be available on our YouTube channel after the conference is over.
