Review by Rtn Manon Lennon

ICUFR member and PRID Dan Mooers offered to host and planned the 2014 ICUFR conference in Portland, Maine.

My husband Patrick Poupart, Founding president of the RC of Laval Rive-Nord, Quebec Canada and I, Manon Lennon, D7040 PolioPlus Committee Chair attended this ICUFR event (our first) and were both very impressed by the quality of this conference and other ICUFR members we met from England, Nova Scotia, Iowa, Georgia USA, Maine, and New York, all great folks..  Everything was well over and above our expectations.

Dan MooersThe conference was held at the Fireside Inn and Suites, 81 Riverside Street, Portland, Maine and it began on Thursday, September 25, 2014 at 5:30 PM with a Welcoming BBQ/Cook-out at the home of Shirley and Dan Mooers, who also provided return transportation between the hotel and their home in South Portland.

Every morning, after breakfast, our group retreated to the meeting room to catch up with ‘Friends and Fun’ before listening to the great speakers that Dan had arranged for us.
