The youngsters will be reunited with their friends in the Child Care Room. The Caught in the Middle Group (CITM) will be overjoyed with the return of laser tag. The newly appointed teen coordinators are busy making their plans. Both our new and experienced parents will gather together for Parents Workshops, sharing information, stories and laughter. DAAA will return with their annual games, inspiring some friendly competition. Conference attendees will also appreciate the return of our tried and true activities along with a few new surprises. And bring your flair to this year’s Awards Banquet with a “World’s Fair” theme as St. Louis was home of the 1904 World’s Fair and has many beautiful sites dating back to that time period.
