Illuminators Torch Awards Dinner Honoring: Karl Schroeder


Illuminators at the 2014 CGA!!

Mary & I just want to take a moment for making this year’s CGA Convention the most exciting ever!  The feedback from the CGA and our Retail partners regarding our Organizations performance was extremely positive all the way down to the memorable Special Events on Tuesday.  Every one of our committees over-delivered on this Convention and the participation at both Illuminator functions in the San Jacinto room this year was “over-the-top”.

I’m very proud of our Chair & Vice Chairs, my Liaisons, and my fellow Officers for their unbending support and ensuring we delivered on bringing fun and relaxation back to the annual gathering of Grocers.

Before I sign-off please don’t forget about our Torch Award honoring Karl Schroeder.  I hope to see most of you there.  Mary & I are feeling pretty good about the upcoming WAFC and we don’t anticipate any issues with delivering another flawless convention.

I hope everybody had a good time and was able to accomplish a lot in regards to meetings with our Retail partners.  Enjoy the break and we’ll see you at the next event!
