Here are the wonderful logos that were submitted, and of course don't forget our current logo too.  Keep in mind that whichever logo we choose to go with will be adapted so it can be  used both as a sidebar button as well as our Blog Header.

All of the due-paying members that attend Saturday's meeting will be given a ballot
to vote for their Top 3 Favorite Logos.

Thanks to Mary Claire, Wendy R. (and her son), Lynne M. and Juli Ann D for creating the above artwork.
