We're going to have a great day on Friday September 20th, starting with meeting in the lobby of the hotel at 10:00 a.m. where we will be chauffeured to ESSE Purse Museum and Shop. So, be sure to eat a good breakfast and wear comfortable shoes.

A few things you should know about ESSE's. There are only 3 purse museums in the world and only 1 in the Continental Unites States. It is handicapped accessible, and if you are lucky enough to have been before then you are aware they change their displays out several times a year.

Lunch will follow the tour at the hotel at 1:00 p.m. The theme for our luncheon is "WHAT'S IN YOUR HANDBAG?" So be sure to bring your handbag/purse to the luncheon. Here's your hint, if it's on your iPhone it will NOT count.

Let's keep the tour and luncheon simple and dress comfortably in business casual.

The Gala Banquet will Friday night at 7:00 p.m. The dress code is "Sunday Best".

The hospitality room will be closed during all mealtimes and while we are on tour. As always, we love it when you bring your special snack to share with all.

For those with a late checkout on Saturday or staying until Sunday the hospitality room will be open until Sunday morning.

If you have a name tag, please wear it.

Everyone enjoys the silent auction, so if you would like to bring an item - please do. It will start Thursday and close before the banquet. This gives everyone time to pick up their winning item(s).

So, be sure to have your Mason sign you up on the Registration Form, so we can get an accurate count for transportation, and you get your choice on meals.

Everyone knows we love South Central, we love going to them and we love hosting them. So, on behalf of your hostess this year for Arkansas, pack your bags and come join the fun.
