Conference Countdown: The Reception Table

A popular feature of the WV Writers Summer Conference for the past few years has been our Reception Table. This is the long table at the back of the assembly hall where snacks, food, drinks and assorted goodies are to be found and enjoyed by all conference attendees. However, all those goodies don't magically appear by themselves.

This is why we are once again asking our members who plan to attend the conference to please bring with either one item of food (such as cookies, pastries, finger foods, maybe a pack of snack-sized candy bars, a pack of full sized candy bars, or, heaven help us, something healthy like trail mix bars, Kashi bars, etc.) or one 12 pack of drinks (non alcoholic, of course, most likely of the soft and fizzy variety). WV Writers will be suppying the water, coffee and veggie/fruit trays. We are also in need of the loan of coolers full of ice to help keep the drinks cool.

If you're headed up next week, how bout stop by your favorite neighborhood store and bring a little something with you. If everyone brings one such item above, we'll be set for the whole weekend. And to say thanks to those of you who donate such items, WV Writers will enter your name in a drawing for one of our soon-to-be-famous WV Writers Prize Packs. Just see the table attendant for your ticket.
