Ladies Luncheon at Mississippi Poultry Convention a Huge Success23 October 2015
US - The ladies luncheon at the annual convention of the Mississippi Poultry Association gave guests the chance to test their artistic abilities with a distinctly nautical theme.
The 78th annual convention in Destin, Florida, brought together various MPA members, guests and speakers for three days of conference along with sporting and leisure activities.
Sponsors Cobb-Vantress and Huvepharma hosted the ladies luncheon, which this year featured an instructed painting session by Studio by the Sea. The ladies were served drinks and food while having a chance to mingle before beginning to paint their ‘masterpieces’. Once the painting concluded, there was a raffle and the ladies received gift bags to conclude the luncheon.
Tommy Walker, US Technical Service Representative of Cobb-Vantress, commented: “It has been a pleasure to represent Cobb in hosting the Ladies Luncheon each year. The ladies that attend are wives of the managers we meet each week and it’s a treat for us to put on this activity for them.”
The ladies program has been running for more than 10 years, growing from 45 participants to 80, with Cobb and the MPA seeking to expand the level of participation in the future.
Becky Beard, MPA’s Meeting Planner commented, “The ladies program at the Mississippi Poultry Association simply would not exist at the level it does without the hard work of the people at Cobb. It is a fun time had by all and we look forward to next year!”
