Salvete mea amici! This past year was not only driven by a theme of bees, but by an interest to reconnect with all that the JCL is: friends from other schools and states, service projects benefiting charities locally to internationally, and the classical languages we love This scrapbook tells the story of the WisconsinJCL from the beehive in Miami, Ohio to our delegation's return to the hive in Fargo, North Dakota. through constellations. The cover features Musca Borealis, which today we regard as a fly, but the constellation's discoverer, Petrus Plancius, originally named it "Apes," or "Bee." Constellations are featured throughout the scrapbook, connecting with each page's content. Enjoy the stargazing!
