Hi, Everybody:  This Saturday, November 9th, from 9:00 to 11:00 AM, is our LBNC EP Meeting at the Flyaway Bus Terminal, upstairs in the Community Meeting Room (take the elevator INSIDE the building or the steps OUTSIDE, at 7610 Woodley Avenue (NE Corner of Saticoy and Woodley) in Lake Balboa.  Plenty of FREE PARKINGin the short-term lot out front in the spaces closest to Woodley Ave.
We have a really full meeting this month, so please be there by 9:00 AM so we can start right on time!  Bill Hopkins will give us a quick wrapup of the Valley Disaster Fair on October 12th.  And because of the fires and local (Valley) evacuations, I think it’s a good idea to do a very brief rundown of our Emergency Evacuation Binder, especially for those of you who missed it the first time!
Brent Lowensohn will review his newly patented Brent’s Box(of special interest to all you CERT folks), and though last but certainly not least, Jeff Edelstein of SOS Survival Products will give us some ideas about some great EP items for Holiday Gifts!  We’re doing it in November instead of December this year to give you plenty of time to shop for those special folks on your list.  Remember, EP Items and Classes make for some of the most appreciated gifts you’ll give this season!
Just a quick reminder that Erin Huey will be our December speaker, and you know how great her talks are, so please mark  Saturday, December 14th on your calendar right now!
Be aware that Fire Season seems to last all year long now, and sadly we are in the midst of Santa Ana Season as well.  Be prepared to evacuate your home in 5 minutes or less when that knock comes on your door at 3:00 AM!  Many of our neighbors have had to do just that in recent days…
We hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving, spent with those you love!  I’ll be heading back to North Carolina to enjoy some time with my daughter and her family.  She’s a wonderful cook, (gets it from MY Mom), and I’m already searching for those elastic waist pants to wear while I’m back there!  😉
STAY SAFE!!!
