Photos from Dearborn 2010

These photos from our successful Annual Meeting in Dearborn, Michigan come to us from NYCSHS Director and former President Thomas Gerbracht. A great time was had by all, thanks to Convention Director Richard Croy and all of his “behind the scenes” assistants. See you in Albany in 2011!
