Hello, I am Sarah Edwards, currently Chief of an Alumnae Service organization based in Birmingham, Alabama known as Wayfarers.
  Our group was organized in 1947 as a group of out-of-doors trainers who would teach campfire cooking in a city park in our area one evening a month.
 The three leaves are of the sassafras tree which is the only tree (that we know of) which has three distinct leaves.
 We have been having these membership pins made for our group since the 50"s.

 

YIGS,

 

Sarah Edwards, Chief of Wayfarers
