Christmas Party December 4th, 2017

The LARC Christmas Party was a great success. Unfortunately, some of our comrades were not able to attend because they were either hospitalized or recovering from an illness or procedure. These include Bert KG2G, Jim KG4PWF, Al W4ZSC, Bob K2EUH, and someone very special to all of us, Carolyn Van Winkle. Please keep these folks in your thoughts and prayers, along with their loved ones who cannot help but be affected as well.

 They say that a picture is worth a thousand words, but some pictures defy explanation.
Feel free to write your own caption for this one.

Most of the usual suspects attended the Christmas Party, but the even better news is that there were several new faces among us. LARC welcomes the new members.
