The Travelers Protective Association (TPA) recently held its 129th national convention at the L’Auberge Casino Resort in Lake Charles, Louisiana.  More than 100 delegates representing 18 divisions located throughout the country attended the three-day conference.  An auction and reception raised more than $22,000 for the Scholarship Trust for the Hearing Impaired.  More than $3,000 was also raised for the Homer T. Wilson Fund, which provides emergency financial aid and is designated for indigent members, widows, widowers and orphans.  The Association’s national election was held, Wayne Wentworth from Michigan was elected as president and Elwood Reed from Missouri was elected as vice president.  “This year’s convention was a wonderful celebration of our organization’s accomplishments over the past year,” said the TPA’s Chief Administrative Officer Albert M. Shoemaker, Jr.  “I am overwhelmed with the amount of support and generosity we received as we strive to improve the quality of life for others, and the communities we live in.”  For more information on TPA and how to join, visit our website at or call headquarters at 636-724-2227.
