The first USA Mexico Friendship Conference I ever attended was in Cuernavaca, Morelos. But that wasn’t my first trip to Cuernavaca. In fact, I lived there for a time and really learned to love Mexico while I was there. It was also where I learned to speak Spanish through an immersion program. So I am very excited about this year’s upcoming conference to be held again in the “City of Eternal Spring.”

In Zone 26 for the year that ended June 30, only 44 of the 660 clubs earned banners for achieving 100% EREY. That's a whopping 6%!
