LCBA's 6th annual summer potluck was a great time - & we didn't melt despite the 90+ degree heat, thanks to the shelter at Alexander Park & the little breeze that blessed us partway through. Thanks to members for bringing great food & drawing donations! We honored our founding president, Bob Harris, with LCBA's 1st-ever honorary lifetime membership... shared food & fellowship....& had a fun drawing whose highlight was Kent Yates' winning LCBA president Norm Switzler's donated nuc of bees to help support our 2015 Youth Scholarship Program.
