Actually 1000

Ah, the wonders of the internet.  I looked up the Branson Convention Center’s calendar of events and learned that the Conklin Company (a network marketing organization) has 1000 people in town for a convention February 1-7.  Hence the huge and boisterous gang at The Olive Garden last night.

Conklin is the last name of one of my uncles, but I doubt he was in town.  It seems that the Conklin Company specializes in outdoorsy and farming type offerings like “crop management, animal supplements, health & home, lawn care, roofing systems, sealants & coatings, and vehicle products.

Now we know.

    Thank you for noticing Conklin Company’s 40th anniversary convention. I’m the Webmaster for the company, and I’m just back in the office after 4 days in Branson. We had a good meeting; about half the attendees were Amish or Mennonite farmers. They use a lot of Conklin products. Please visit us at
