In Spring of 2009 Fran embarked on a journey to Grand Rapids Michigan. The IAOM certainly is an organization that selects the finest in convention centers. The AMWAY Grand Plaza fit the bill. This convention attracts farmers, millers, chemical specialists, and farm equipment manufacturers from not only the US, but around the world as well. Fran was selected to play music for a gathering of customers associated with the chemical industry. The event was catered with quite a spread of food and cocktails. It was very classy.
