For two full days in Ventura CA, from 9 to 5, PSWA's board worked on by-laws and made plans for the future of PSWA. The picture was taken at the end of the two days and our last meal together. Toast us is our president, Marilyn Olsen. Another photo shows Tim Dees and Lynn and Keith Bettinger. Nancy Farrar and Michelle Perin is in the other photo. Nancy's husband, AJ was present and so was I and my husband. For some unknown reason, I didn't get a photo of us. (Lynn and Hap didn't attend the meetings as they aren't member of the board, but joined us for meals.)
We took time out for lunch at two of Ventura's interesting restaurants and we had dinner together in the evenings--walking everywhere.
On Saturday night, after dinner in a Thai restaurant we headed up to the old Ventura court house, reported to be haunted, and took a tour of the grand old building. Part of our tour was in the dark--ask Keith Bettinger's wife how exciting that was.
I've only attended two of these board meeting and I always wonder what on earth we're going to talk about for two whole days. Believe me, we could have used one more day. We were all given tasks to perform as soon as possible after our return home.
It was great to see everyone and I'm looking forward to seeing them again in June at the PSWA Conference. http://www.publicsafetywriter.com
