Prometheoids

Bringers of Fire to the LASFS

In the bad old days (until mid-2011), the food for the Second Sunday open house was cooked on a charcoal grill. We then acquired a propane grill instead, which is much easier to use and clean. The following members contributed money for the new grill:

Patrick Fahey
Hamilton Westbrooks
David T. Okamura
Michael Thorsen
Barbara Harmon
Ed Hooper
Robin DePari
Scott Tygett
Marcia Minsky
Mary Ann Canfield
