Greetings Fellow Federationists,

I am trying to get a head start on our 2017 NFBWV state convention as my

merchandise.  This chapter will be responsible for collecting the door
prizes from the registration table.  This chapter will also be responsible
for making the name cards that will be used for the awarding of the door
