To the Editor:

I attended the Foundation for Restoration of Ste. Genevieve History Conference during the weekend of September 20.

I want to thank Sara Menard, Bob Mueller, Jack Koetting and the conference committee for a job well done. Much work went into planning the opening reception, securing the speakers, organizing the food and coordinating with the places of worship for Sunday’s tour.

This year’s speakers were extremely interesting and the quality of the presenters is to be commended. The residents of Ste. Genevieve are very fortunate to have such a top-notch organization in their city, and I appreciate the foundation’s hard work in presenting such an informative conference.

I’m sure it’s no easy task to coordinate an event of this magnitude and everything went so smoothly.

The foundation’s dedication to preserving Ste. Genevieve’s history should not go unnoticed, and next year’s conference is already on my calendar.
