Fourth of July Spectacular - this was one not to miss.

LAYC Fourth of July Spectacular was another SOLD OUT event!  There were so many highlights from the evening including Trish and Keith Duchene's Most Patriotic Costume (see photo) and the delicious all-you-can-eat Pie Bar. 

Thanks to the many LAYC members who brought all of those fabulous pies. Also, a big shout out goes to Frank Nolan and his rock 'n roll band  "Strut" for the great energy, music and dancing everyone enjoyed. 

If you missed this year's celebration, mark your calendar for next 4th of July and plan on joining us - we missed you.
