 The HWSDA Conference 2009 committee prepared a most exciting Conference in 2009 at Olds College…check out the photos of the Juried Show on the website! If you have any you would like posted, simply email them to the WebMaster.

Silent Auction
Proceeds from the Silent Auction and the Penny Plus Piggy Bank went to fund Cottage Industries at the Tabitha Foundation.  Over $300 was raised.
Draws and door prizes
This year we have updated our Door Prize Draw so that we can comply with the new Alberta Gaming and Liquor Commission rules.  There were many happy recipients of the draws.

Experimenting with the conference colors was made easier by Creating Color Palettes.  Thanks, Linda Wilson, for sharing!

Heartfelt thanks to the hard working HWSDA Conference 2009 Committee Members!
