May 2004 Meeting

Go Back      

May is the beginning of a new Membership year and it was the first meeting at which our new Board presided . 
Margo Knight (left) and Sylvie Lansdowne (right) are our new Co-Presidents. Here they are making announcements using our new audio system which was selected and set up by Kristy Nijenkamp.  (Thank you, Kristy!!).

Kristy Nijenkamp (left) served as our treasurer for the past two years.  This year she is our Vice President.  Carl Andrews (right) is our new Meeting Coordinator and is responsible for setting up chairs, tables, food, equipment, and nametags for each meeting.  


Kim Runge is this year's Treasurer.  Hopefully, she will still be smiling as brightly at the end of the year.  Being Treasurer is lots of work.

Our new Corresponding Secretary is Nita VanTil - she will have her a section each month on the website where we will publish her notes from the previous month's meeting.

Our outgoing co-president who contributed so much to the growth of Southern Flames during the past year is shown opening a small token of our appreciation.  
Member Camille Simmons is shown below with her husband Robert who is also a member. She is wearing a beaded lariat.  Robert Simmons makes  the beads and Camille incorporates them into into jewelry using a bead crochet technique.  The pieces are stunning and if you would like to see more of Robert's work, Beads by Design has a tray of his beads on display.
