On May 3-5, 2013, District 65 hosted its spring conference at the RIT Inn and Conference Center in Rochester, New York. With three days of events, the only way to accomplish this is to have many dedicated volunteers to help. Please take time to thank the many volunteers who made this conference a success! Without them, we never could have a conference of this size be so successful. Please accept our apologies if we left anyone off of this list.
