    Hello The 75th Annual IACRAO conference is being held in Fort Wayne this year on October 20th and 21st. IACRAO is a group of Higher Education Registrar’s representing both public and private institutions with the State of Indiana. The first meeting was held on March 29, 1940 at Indiana University and since then it has been held annually. This year it is being held at the Hilton Fort Wayne and Grand Wayne Convention Center. Since this is the 75th annual conference we are looking for local businesses to help us with giveaways for those attending. Is it possible that you would donate a free carriage ride for two luck people? The individuals attending this conference are from all over Indiana so this could be advertisement for you and bring new comers to our fair city. I greatly appreciate anything you can do to help us celebrate our annual conference. I would be happy to pick up a gift card or it can be mailed to me at: Indiana Tech Abbott Center Registrar Office 1600 E Washington Boulevard Fort Wayne, IN 46803 Again thank you so much for whatever you can help us with, Sincerely, Lynda McGehee

    I am a graduating Senior at IPFW taking a photojournalism class. I am to create a photo story for my next assignment. I have always loved horses and wondered what "A Day in the Life..." would be like for a working horse. I was wondering if you would give me permission to come out and photograph and interview you and your horses? After the assignment is graded, you would be welcome to use the photostory for PR. I would be available Friday late afternoon and Saturdays, generally speaking but of course we would have to choose a mutually convenient day and time. Thank you so much for your time and consideration on my behalf. Best Regards, Saadia Mead
