Our thanks to Lifetouch for sponsoring the state receptions at the NELMS Conference and thanks to those who attended the Massachusetts reception. Besides the conference being an enriching event, the reception offered us an opportunity to network with others in the Middle Level. People sat, chatted and shared experiences over cheese and crackers, fruits and yes, drinks. See if you recognize some of the faces. If you don't, be sure to attend next year to get to know some of these people who have taken advantage of all that NELMS has to offer.
