¡Saludos! Pan American Sisters,
Our 60th State Convention recently took place in McAllen, it's theme incorporated “The Beauty of the Rio Grande Valley” which described the many facets of our border hospitality. The 135 members, 10 international members and guests enjoyed local cuisine, entertainment and a live band during the Gala festivities.
After 2 years of Covid quarantining, this convention provided a much needed opportunity to rekindle friendships, appreciate life, and reaffirm our Pan American goals. Without a doubt, it was a very successful convention in honor of our outgoing State Director, Martha M. Stumbo. We thank her wholeheartedly for keeping us together these past three years!
I would like to express my gratitude to Mariella Gorena, Raquel Oliva; Convention Co-Chairs, along with the Edinburg, Alamo-San Juan-Pharr, Rio Grande City-Roma, San Benito, Brownsville 1, and the McAllen Tables' for their dedication and efforts to provide all with wonderful memories!
Foremost, I'd like to thank you again for your vote of confidence in electing me as your new State Director. I am committed to serving each and every one of you for the next two years. I also look forward to visiting each of your tables in the near future.
PARTT State Director
