It is a Florida Frontiersmen tradition to grant the privilige of naming our rendezvous and designing the medalion to our Booshways. It is one way we imbed their unique spirit into the event. Every year, the rendezvous slogan sets the stage.
Our slogan for 2016 is "Bridging the gap with our ancestors". The icon that will be on the medallions will be a bridge. Stephanie has a degree in Civil Engineering. She has worked on many roadway projects for the Florida Department of Transportation. So we chose a bridge to incorporate her career.Once the design done, we will share it with you.
We hope that you will bring your unique ties to your own ancestors next January. If you have a story to share, why not consider volunteering as a docent for a school tour on Thursday. With all of the crazy things that are going on in the world today, bridging to our past can offer comfort to our next generation. Where our forfathers have been, where we have been, our children will no doubt have to go too. Let's all hold a lantern to their feet so their walk in the future is fun and safe.
See you soon,
Stephanie & Mike
