Exciting news shared by HLAA National regarding the OTC Hearing Air 2017 bill currently progressing through congress. The Senate just passed the bill originally introduced by Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) and Chuck Grassley (R-IA) in March of this year. The House of Representatives passed the bill back on July 12 so now it’s up to the President to sign off on the bill.
With the Convention, March for Science and holiday chapter parties, we haven’t had an actual Chapter meeting since March! Needless to say, we had to shake the rust off a bit to remember just everything that needed to get done for the meeting!
It’s the farewell day but not before getting a chance to witness the live weekly performance of the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. The performance is every Sunday from 9:30am-10am Mountain time for the last 87 going on 88 years!

Well, it’s the last full day of the convention but filled with sessions, workshops and memory overload. After some breakfast, I yonder over to the train and head into the convention to start the first of five sessions.

It’s the second day of the convention, well, actually the third day for me but it doesn’t feel like it.

It’s the official opening day of the convention so crowds of people will be coming!

After a good breakfast, I naturally make the mistake of trekking all the way over to the convention center from the hotel during toasty morning temperatures instead of the train. I get there nice and hot so I try to cool myself off via any means I could.

After an uneventful early flight from Burbank to Salt Lake City, which is a very good thing, I arrived at the airport. Luggage was waiting and had an easy walk over to the Light Rail Green Line that would journey me on a 20 minute scenic ride through downtown Salt Lake to my Little America Hotel. The city is clean and pretty so it was an enjoyable ride and all for $2.50! The only downside was it was a toasty 95 degrees out but my deodorant held up (I think).

Good times and much needed catching up was the scene at our Memorial Weekend picnic held for the first time at Lacy Park in San Marino. The location for our gathering was in a beautiful shaded area of Lacy Park so with blue skies and cool temperatures – we couldn’t have asked for a better setting! A big thank you to our President, Heather Lehr for arranging the location and gathering!
