Hannibal represented at TPA meeting

From: Hannibal Courier Post, MO - Jul 1, 2004

Travelers Protective Association Post O of the Missouri Division was represented at the national convention of TPA held recently in Peoria, Ill., as Dennis and Susan Newlon joined 40 other Missouri TPA members to form the Missouri Division Delegation.

The delegation participated in committee meetings concerning membership, publicity and safety as well as the general conference. Amendments were made to the TPA national constitution and national officers were elected.

A special presentation was made by Jean Mogg, director of the Mogg Center for Deaf Education showing how the center works with profoundly deaf children learning to speak. TPA sponsors a scholarship for the deaf and near deaf with one organization receiving funding being the Mogg Center.

Next year's convention will be in Green Bay, Wis.
