Our Christmas Luncheon was a great success. We met at a Steve’s Steak House at 11847 Jefferson Ave. in Newport News. We had over seventy attendees and great fellowship. President Christine Darden gave an inspirational talk to the members and the food was delicious.

For our November 12, 2014 meeting, Michelle Ferebee, Lead for Strategy/Business Development at LaRC, described “A NACA/NASA-LaRC Update”.

The LAA Board is continuing to pursue information on spousal benefits. President Darden will work with Gail Langevin to acquire the necessary information.
