The end of the Annual NOMADS gathering is coming to an end. The final banquet and entertainment will be held in just a few hours and everyone will be on their way home tomorrow.
The meetings were inspirational, provided spiritual growth opportunities and a lot of fellowship. Training classes in various skill areas were conducted and did acquaint everyone with new ideas.
There were 317 attendees at the gathering. The main fundraiser, a community charity auction yielded $50,390 to be used to support activities in the future.
One point that was made is that we all need to work at recruiting younger members. Membership in the organization is slipping and many of the active members are older than 75 so if we are to continue younger folks must be recruited.
