Where in the World is UELAC?

First, put yourself in the picture with UELAC Promotional gear. Then, send your photo to Doug Grant Loyalisst and we'll add you to our UELAC sightings gallery below.

Where is Col Edward Jessup Branch member Barbara Law?

Where in the World? Where in the World?

Answer:   [ Barbara and husband Ken visited Churchill, Manitoba. The two pictures are from the side of the highway just outside Churchill and then at the Churchill Railway Station & Museum. We saw a lot of polar bears and other animals but none up close. We really enjoyed our time there and would recommend it. ]

Answer:   [ With the promise of Spring in the air, it was tough to wait it out. Warmer climes beckon. The lush vegetation and the small table in the foreground offer clues; the camel (named Akawi) narrows the possibilities, but I didn't meet Akawi at the 2014 Toronto UELAC conference. In this case, it was Africa – more specifically, Marrakech, Morocco. ]
