Hi Aunty Yvonne, Greetings to all! Kindly take a note this email is being sent from my Mum, Conchita Pooten :)
My family and I also want to extend our thanks to everyone, no less Marjorie and members of IAC, for hosting and organising the conference, extended hospitality throughout our visit; Dona, Patrick, Hilda and family for ferrying us (10 of us!) from the airport and other places, the top quality souvenir program (the first of its kind for ICBE :)) and also for their hospitality; my fellow ICBE friends in the steering committee Yvonne, Ric, Susan and Rhino) for their wisdom and support; and also to all participants who extended personal expenses and sacrifices in order to join the group and make this 8th ICBE a resounding success. Thank you also to Yvonne for your continued perseverance with the emails -- keeping ICBE going throughout.
