Seat Covers - Publicity at the Jamboree

Chair cover

Leslie Carney, Michelle Launi and I (Amy Urman) recentlly returned form the Jamboree sponsored by the Southern California Genealogical Society.  I think we made our organization known at the event with the help of Leslie's chair covers.  Leslie designed and sewed up the chair covers.  Her idea was a hit - people stopped by to talk to us about our society and to ask for pictures to copy her idea.  I think we will see a few more chair covers at upcoming events.
