Meet me in St. Louie

Writing from St. Louis, MO while attending the 2012 LCWR Assembly. The opening evening and first day have been very fine, with two more days to come. The last few years have averaged 600 participants, this year there are 900 in attendance.

The hotel is located right on the Mississippi, across the street from the Gateway Arch. In between sessions we took a couple hours to go over to the Arch, which is located in Jefferson National Park. We viewed two great movies, one on the building of the Arch itself, finished in 1965, and the other on the Lewis and Clark expedition which began here in Missouri: American History 101. Then we took the cable car-like ride to the top of it: WOW!

And right around the corner is Busch Stadium, home of the St. Louis Cardinals. Big cities: great places to visit!

The NCR is doing an almost continual reporting on the LCWR event. See their homepage for articles.
