The ANPA 25th anniversary Convention started with an opening reception party organized by the local organizing committee (ANPA Washington DC).Thanks to the Chair of the association Aham Onyike and his able executive committee for organizing such a wonderful reception at the Smithsonian African Art Museum. It included dinner, open bar, live jazz, magic show and a private tour of the museum for attendees and their guests. There was a proclamation from the Mayor of Washington DC and the Governor of Virginia.
We also used the opportunity to celebrate the birthdays of Dr and Mrs Asonye (75 and 70 years respectively) and Dr Charmaine Emelife, ANPA President. Convention starts officially tomorrow with Zumba. See you then.
