Where in the World is Fleur de Lis?
On a van retrieval expedition during pre-camp, Ladies Emily Grilli and K. Crow warned me of a strange phenomenon that has been known to happen to FDL alumnae and staff. It seems that once you become acquainted with FDL and its namesake symbol, you start seeing them everywhere. It made sense to me, as it is an image that has been adopted by more than just our camp, but as they pointed out, it isn’t simply that you see them in places outside of camp; it’s that you see them in really random places.

So in the spirit of this strange coincidence, I am proposing the following contest:
From now until Halloween, keep your eyes out and cameras (or phones) ready. Post your fleur-de-lis sightings onto the FDL Facebook with a brief explanation of where you found it. The person or persons with the most random/strange/amazing photo will be handsomely rewarded.
