Camaraderie abounded in October, as seven of the eight Sections within the Central Region participated in a wonderful gathering in French Lick, Indiana.  Almost 50 St. Louis Gateway Section members joined in the fun!  Thanks to Rick & Patti Siefert and Frank & Luella Perry for hosting this great event.

The historic French Lick Springs and West Baden Springs Hotels, initially established in 1845, have had recent extensive updates, now blending their fascinating history with modern amenities and services.

Our weekend together included lunch at the French Lick Winery and Vintage Café, dinner at The German Café, a Leadership Breakfast at the Grand Colonnade in the French Lick Springs Hotel, a fantastic driving tour in and around the beautiful French Lick area, with lunch at Miguel's Mexican restaurant afterwards, a very interesting tour of the West Baden Springs Hotel, topped off with a final gathering of all attendees, with of course drinks and heavy hors d’oeuvres, back at the French Lick Springs Hotel.

Sections were recognized for their efforts within the MBCA and surprise presentations made to Section Members-of-the-Year and our 2019 Central Region Officer-of-the-Year, Ken Koehler, President of the Indianapolis Section.

On Sunday, goodbyes were extended to the wonderful new friends made and the old friends enjoyed being with as well………..
