Ladies and Gentlemen,


I do not know where to start, or what to say. You were all truly amazing, and once again presented what OHIO UPMA is all about. You all made it so much easier for Lou and I. We were overwhelmed by the many hands we had. And you all made it look so easy. I will say it was alot more than I thought, but wow, we pulled it off so well. The compliments we received were never ending. I am still answering texts and emails. Many comments were about the creativity of the Ohio Chapter. We were beyond fantastic. Check out UPMA Gold. 


I was able to speak with 5 of the Kalahari Administrative Staff yesterday before I left.  Some of them shared that they were teary eyed watching some of our events, such as awards, presentations, and the skit. They were overwhelmed with our groups work Team work. I also received many compliments about Kalahari. People were very happy with the facility. 


For whatever your part was in this, and whatever wasn't your part, but you took on and conquered, THANK YOU. We are awesome, and we showed it. Our convention and efforts are all over social media. We are  so proud. 


Let's take this awesome experience and grow on it. People will see this and wish they had attended. Let's work on this and grow membership. 


I am so blessed to have you all in my circle of life. Thank you for all you do, and for all you are to me. I don't have a few emails so if you can share, please do.  


Enjoy a well deserved relaxing weekend all,


Mari Beth, Co-chair The Fifth Annual UPMA National Convention



Ditto to what Mari Beth said. I posted on Facebook that I have never felt so loved and appreciated by so many. That’s because of our people!
