    Marsha, I’ve been to six Nationals and one Regional, but it was a long time ago. Went to Nashville I and II, Dallas I and II, Vegas I, and San Diego. Vegas was too big (5200 women!!), but the rest were wonderful. My best friend Judy Jet Wallis was my roomie for all but San Diego (Karol Gray was my roomie there), and we were happy to meet so many of the women we had talked to on the QMB. My favorite convention was the Regional one when we Reduated Disneyland in 2005. I had grown up watching Walt Disney every Sunday night, showing the progress that was made on the park during the week, so it was very special to help Disneyland turn 50. Mickey and Minnie escorted Sue Ellen and Linda into the Opening Night festivities, and every woman in the room sang every word to the Mickey Mouse Club theme song. On Saturday, we got to march in the Main Street parade. I was crying by the time that was over. Over the years, I attended six or seven QMB reunions around the country, and they were wonderful, thanks to Pat Hickock and Vicki Wilkerson.
