Field Report — Australia

by Ted Kaye, Vexilloid Tabloid #55

If you’re in the Portland area this Thursday evening, come to our next bimonthly meeting to see and hear more from Ted Kaye.  And others — bring your own item or story to share!

Attending the 26th International Congress of Vexillology (ICV 26) provided an opportunity for travel around Australia and see flags!

Field Report — New England & Canada Cruise

by Michael Orelove, Vexilloid Tabloid #55

Long-time PFA member Michael Orelove is recovering from a medical emergency. We will miss having his good-natured enthusiasm at our meetings, and wish him a full and expeditious return to health. Here is a photo essay he put together for our most recent newsletter.

When I take a trip, I pack clean underwear, my toothbrush, and some flags.  I also pick up more flags along the way.  In October Kathleen and I took a 10-day cruise through New England and Canada on a Holland America ship.

I use the flags that I acquire on these trips, as well as those sent me by governments and other entities, when I give flag talks to school and community groups.
