During Friday's General Session, Sister Ann-Marie Kirmse, the district's coordinator for the Eliminate Project, reports on the project's progress. Standing behind her are Past International President Jerry Christiano and his wife, Linda, who reported on their trip to Sierra Leone as part of the project.

During her talk, Linda Christiano invited those present to take out $2, the amount needed to vaccinate a prospective mother against tetanus, and then told them they could put that back away. That didn't work, as some present jumped up and collected the money, raising $340 for the Eliminate Project.

Gov. Bill Risbrook selected District Secretary Justin Underwood and Builders Club Administrator Joanne Underwood as the Convention Honorees. Underwood, who has served several years as district secretary and is a past governor, and Joanne are both past lieutenant governors of the Genesee Division. Pictured, from left, are First Lady Dr. Lavonia Francis, Risbrook, Justin Underwood and Joanne Underwood. They were recognized at a reception at the end of Friday's day of business at the convention.
