In Illinois, we are part of the Great Lakes Region. This year, our Regional meeting was in Novi, Michigan.
Here is a skit that my daughter and her friend wrote to help raise money for the C.A.R. Voyager fund. They were dancing to the tune "Friday".
Each region features a tour to a local attraction. In Michigan, we went to Greenfield Village, a nationally renowned historic village.
The Regional meeting always ends with a formal banquet and dance. Here is Amanda with National President Mary Lib Schmidt.
Mary Lib Schmidt is from Virginia. She is the National President of C.A.R. for 2011-12. Her theme this year is "Living the American Dream". She is raising money to support the Fisher House foundation - an organization that provides lodging for family members of injured veterans while they are patients at a military or VA hospital.
