My what lovely weather we’re having with this frigid cold & inversion. Despite the weather, or maybe because of it, wintertime is awesome because so many great ideas for next festival season are sparked! It’s awesome to hear of plans already in the works for Element 11 art projects and theme camps! Keep those creative fires burning!

Element 11 welcomed December in by hosting a Community Town Hall & Social on Sunday, December 1st. This was a new format for the quarterly E11 Board of Directors Community Meeting. There was less meeting & more fun! Eben Flow set the mood with great tunes and tasty treats abounded. Attendees voted in the preliminary vote for the 2014 E11 theme (you can vote now in the final vote – see details below!).

During the short meeting set during the middle of the event, new BOD and executive committee members were voted in. New BOD members are Cassie Plant & Joe Russo. New executive committee members are: Jeff Reese, Chair; Micky Baker, Vice-Chair; Cathi Kennedy, Secretary; Anne Simmons, Treasurer; and Kari Larson, General Manager.

Elemental Stars were recognized and great discussions were had. Two tickets to Element 11 2014 were also awarded as door prizes – congratulations to the winners – Jennifer Rouse & Mark Hammond! All in all, it was a really fun way to spend an afternoon with our community!

There’s all kinds of info in this issue for you including a new burner advice column, Ask Le Diable.

Enjoy & stay warm!
