On the Cover

Like magic? It was Harry Potter’s best bud Ron Weasley who, when sent into the Dark Forest, said “Why is it always “Follow the spiders’” Why can’t it be “Follow the butterflies’?” Guess what? Someone was listening. Our 2008 Star of the North Meeting beckons on wings, and invites you to “Find Your Way” to its new time frame along a gently winding road. Take time to meander through the pages and see what lies around the next bend. Have a wish? Bring it with. Someone heard you.
