A 'Souls coming of age
2014 was a fantastic year for 'Souls! The board turned THIRTEEN this year, meaning the youngest members allowed to join the board are now younger than the board itself! Crazy, right? Our community's continued to grow as new members join, old members return, and everyone gets to know each other and become more awesome. We've hit records for active members this year, had a number of packs disband only to have new packs start in their place. 2015 is sure to bring more amazing adventures. Who knows, maybe we'll even see a twelfth pack form??
