2012 WWPFG Conference Part 1

We drove east after coming out from the Niagara Falls. It took about 2 hours to get to our destination – Waterloo. There are trees lining the highway. It was green everywhere. Highway in the eastern part of US are not free like in the west.

We arrived around 3 in the afternoon. Doug said that he needed to rest. OK. He droved almost all the way from Toronto. I went out collecting wild flowers.
Queen Anne’s Lace is wild here!

Many friends arrived as I have pressed a little bit. It was so exciting to see everyone!
Dinner was held in Holiday Inn. The hotel has done a good job with the settings.

The new website is being worked by Lisa and a professional developer. It is still work-in-progress. I am still maintaining and enhancing the old site. I designed and developed the conference section with online registration and online payment. The guild recognized our work and gave us gifts.
