St. Marys Conference a Success!

Over 60 people gathered last week in beautiful St. Marys, Georgia for the 2015 GMCA Conference. Grants, Rapid Cemetery Assessments, and Disaster Planning were among the many topics discussed. Participants toured the Dungeness Mansion Ruins and the original burial site of General Light Horse Harry Lee. If that was not enough, conference-goers enjoyed a plethora of great local cuisine. A special "thanks" to all attendees, speakers, and support staff for your help in making our 2015 GMCA Conference a huge success!
