Our apologies to new members Roxanna Seely and Steven Fuller for mistakes in our Welcome Aboards section. The wrong photo was used for Roxanna and Steven’s bio was inadvertently omitted by a layout error. Both items will be corrected in the next issue and on the web site.
A lifelong resident of Jacksonville FL, Roxanna circumnavigated with her husband Fred (also a Circumnavigator) when she realized a long-held dream to see the “top of the world”—Mount Everest. She is active in the Junior League and the Colonial Dames.
Steven lives in Kansas City, Missouri where he practices law and has served as a judge. He has taken his love of travel seriously, having visited 255 countries and territories at last count. He is a Platinum member of the Travelers’ Century Club. Amazingly, he has run 190 marathons on all seven continents. He was the first American to run a marathon in all 50 states.
