Erin Schmitz (Group Sales with the Waterloo CVB) and Christy Decker (Director of Marketing and Tourism for the Sullivan Brothers Iowa Veterans Museum) share the many fascinating opportunities that await in Waterloo. The Museum honors not only the five Sullivan Brothers who perished when their ship the USS Juneau went down, but all Iowa Veterans. Christy shares the incredible history and options of the Grout Museum District, while Erin explains other cool things to do in town. A visit to the National Guard Aviation Facility, and the John Deere Factory are just a couple of options Erin recommends.
Reunion Friendly/Waterloo Iowa
Sharon and Barb talk about the exciting new conferences in the works at Reunion Friendly Network. "It is the goal of RFN to bring high quality educational programs to the military reunion planning community we support." said Sharon of the new events. It bothers me that we don't have a place to go and learn more. The new Reunion Friendly Network Education Summit is full of education, networking, LOTS of fun and some exciting surprises! In addition the new RFN Regional Round Table gives planners a place to start when researching new destinations. Start with the Regional Round Table then go to a ConFAM! Planners will save time and money while meeting the right contacts for the area they are interested in visiting. Find more information here:
