C'mon Over to My House!

How would you like to show off your collection at this year's HLCCA Conference in Kansas City, MO without packing a single dish? We're looking for presenters for this year's "C'mon Over to My House" program.

You would need to provide photos of your collection and be comfortable with standing in front of an audience and narrating the tour through your home and collection. This is one of the most popular features of each year's HLCCA Conference. If you would like to participate or need more information, please e-mail Kathy Holley or call her at (262) 637-9093.
