Early Members

Today, new members are celebrated in the Improbable Blog (where the LFHCfS has it's own category),
and are later collected into galleries organized by the year they joined.
But in the past, their luxuriant flowingness was celebrated in these multi-year galleries.
There are 6 of these early galleries, including this one.
