PMCC Member Jeff Truax and his family (Natalie and Joshua) did a great job in planning and hosting the 2000 Convention. Over one-hundred members and guests enjoyed meeting and making friends. On Saturday a bus tour went to the Old State Capital, the New State Capital, the Campus of Louisiana State University, and the Baton Rouge Area. The Friday night Ice Cream Social went to the Marble Slab Creamery who opened specially for our group inspite of an watermain break that closed the surronding area! The Museum Auction earned over $4000, and Billie Stone and Dave Proulx battled over a basket of cajun food and treats.

For any questions please send e-mail to Jeff Truax.
The Holiday Inn South at the intersection of I-12 and U.S. 61 will serve as our convention site. We have secured a room rate of $65 a night, and the hotel and convention facilities should serve our needs well.
The hotel is located approximately 15 miles from the Baton Rouge Metro Airport. The airport is served by several major airlines, including Northwest, Delta, American and Continental. There is also direct Greyhound bus service from Baton Rouge to New Orleans.
