NWCA Central Regional Convention held at Gretna, Louisiana, April 5 – 7, 2019. A wonderful and very productive NWCA Regional Convention was recently held at the Best Western Plus Hotel at Gretna, Louisiana. The host Club, NWCA New Orleans #192, was led by Barbara Hopstetter.
Helping Barbara were members, Phyllis Connor and Katie Jones. The Opening Dinner included Barbara passing the Gavel to Central Regional President and member of Memphis #219, Allison Barnes. We also enjoyed a special New Orleans dessert treat called “King Cake.” Our business activities were held at the next door restaurant, Fire Wood and Spirits meeting room. Our NWCA Memorial Service was held prior to our meeting.
We had great lunch time fun at the nearby restaurant, DiMartino’s Muffulettas. We completed our business meeting while seated around the outside hotel pool area. More fun was held that evening as some choose to enjoy pizza at Moe’s Pizza while others choose to take in supper at local seafood restaurants. Our closing brunch was held on Sunday at the Hope Café, Timerlane Country Club.
After enjoying a great time of wonderful food, fun and entertainment by the local group called the Mohawk Hunters, Allison Barnes presented awards. Finally, it came time for us to depart following a great and memorable time in Southern Louisiana. Join the Fun, Join our mission as together we support our Military Services, Military Families and Local Communities. Contact us at: www.navywivesclubsofamerica.org.
