Winter 2016-2017 Torch U.S

Dreaming of Dixie

Ever wonder the president's favorite iced tea is or the how the CoCo feels about raisins? Wonder no more! Get to know the national officers better in the officer profiles. While the officers are working hard on the first convention at Troy University in Alabama, they are also dreaming up ideal vacations and hoping that you all will join them in Alabama this summer. Check out the officer profiles starting on page 10.

Do as the Romans

Throw on your toga and grab your sword and uncover the world of reenacting. Take latin anywhere in the world when you reenact the actions of the ancient Romans. Learning about the Romans has just been taken to the next level emerging yourself in the complete experience of creating all your clothing and cooking all your food like the Romans did. Be like a Roman and turn to page 14.
