Utah and Juab Counties, It’s Convention Time!

Who doesn’t love spending the day surrounded by friends and family? Well, that’s what’s happening tomorrow, April 15, 2016, when both Utah and Juab County have their Organizing Conventions. I will be attending both and I’m looking forward to all the excitement that convention brings.
