Marilyn Hiltel is the Minnesota North LWML President and graciously sent these pictures.  The young women representatives are an important outreach of the LWML to help raise up another generation of women who focus on mission and ministry.

Debbie Larson was at the North Dakota Convention and the Minnesota North Convention as well.  She may attend all the conventions as far as I know because she is the vice-president of Organizational Resources. for the LWML.  She has been featured in this blog before as she was evacuated in the High Chateau fire in Colorado.  Last I heard she is back home and wandering in the mountains like Ansel Adams.

Cynthia conducts numerous workshops and has speaking engagements regularly.
