Dentists’ Day at the Legislature Being Held, Rain or Shine

Arrangements have been made to accommodate rainy weather for Dentists’ Day at the Legislature, Wednesday, March 30. The forecast is calling for some middle of the day rain, but by reception time, the rain is supposed to decline significantly. Legislators are almost certainly going to be there, rain or shine, because many live at the Pentagon Barracks and many legislators are RSVP’ing as we speak that they are coming. SO, WE NEED YOU THERE! Rescheduling is not a viable option.

Even if the weather is less than ideal, we are NOT anticipating a problem because of extra tents ordered for this year’s event. We do suggest bringing an umbrella in case you need it for the walk across the street from the Welcome Center to the Capitol and wearing appropriate footwear for an outside event. We’ve had successful Dentists’ Days in wet weather in the past!

There should also be an LDA staff member at the LDA office until 5. You can reach the office at 225-926-1986 or 800-388-6642.
