A note about our guild icon
2003, Dayton, Ohio celebrated the 100th anniversary
of the Wright brothers first flight, an event commemorated

at RiverScape in the photo below from the Dayton-Montgomery
County Convention and Visitor's Bureau depicts the
Wright Flyer. We used the Wright Flyer as our guild
icon because it is identifiably Dayton.
