October Meeting Guest Speaker Dr. Robert “Bob” Chapman On Savants

Savants can be defined as persons who, despite significant mental disability, demonstrate exceptional mental capabilities in limited areas. Perhaps you have seen the movie Rain Man, or have been exposed to savants on several of the 60 Minute programs. At the October meeting, Dr. Robert “Bob” Chapman will discuss the history of recognition of the disorder and focus on three "megasavants" who show extraordinary abilities. He will also discuss acquired savantism in persons who sustain brain injury. This is a rare opportunity for us, and you won't want to miss this meeting.

LARC Supports The Lakeland Warrior Walk

Once again, LARC supported a charitable Lakeland event. This time it was the Lakeland Warrior Walk. LARC members and Amateur Radio proved to be a valuable asset. We helped insure an orderly parking of cars, and were able to assist an injured walker while patrolling the route. Service is one of the three legs of the stool our club rests on.
