Conference Reception

by | Nov 7, 2013 | 0 comments

The conference reception was held at the South Carolina Aquarium, and it was a most interesting and enjoyable evening.  While viewing the exhibits, attendees enjoyed a meal of local dishes such as shrimp and grits, Carolina ham and sweet potato biscuits, and Bananas Foster.  Here are photos of a few of the exhibits (note that the aquarium does not limit its collection to aquatic creatures).

An excellent time was had by all.
