Kristen Frantzen Orr will be teaching at Southern Flames in November.  Because there is a great demand for the classes, students are selected by lottery for each of the two classes.  Kim Runge, Joan Theall Houghton, and Carl Andrews are making the class lists as names are drawn from a hat.  (Photo by RS)

Rick Hidding (on the left) served as Southern Flames recording secretary for two years.  Here he is shown accepting a gift of thanks from the Board and Membership.  Rick is the owner of The Cloth Bag Company and has donated the bags featuring the 2003 and 2004 Southern Flames postcards.  Other departing SF Board meetings - Sylvie Lansdowne (co-president) and Kristy Nijenkamp (vice president) received thanks and gifts at an earlier meeting.  (Photo by BA)

Margo Knight shows the audience the logo that we have been using recently to identify Southern Flames.  The membership is being polled to determine whether this should be SF Official logo or if we should have a contest to come up with a new logo. Margo is wearing a bracelet made from a kit and beads from Sylvie Lansdowne. (Photo of Margo by BA; Photo of bracelet by J H-T))
