The sessions and events of the 4th UHS Annual Conference were brought to a close in the evening of Sunday, November 2, 2003. It took on the appearance of a festival. It was an evening of thanksgiving by Urhobo Historical Society for the help it has received. Three awards -- to Senator David Dafinone, Chief Daniel Obiomah, and Chief Simpson Obruche -- were presented by Urhobo Historical Society as its token of appreciation for assistance received in its mission of serving Urhobo history and culture. Several key speeches were made. Many  of those events were captured in photographs that are presented below.
