Greetings to the LAA family.

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.

To keep up with activities at the NASA Langley Research Center visit the NASA Langley Website.

There is an excellent series of monthly lectures available to the LAA membership. The Colloquium is presented in the LaRC Reid Center at 2:00 pm and the same or similar Sigma Series lecture in the VASC at 7:30 pm. Please visit Colloquium and Sigma Lectures for more details including the upcoming topic.

Of special interest to LAA Alumni, the Colloquium and Sigma talks on July 8 will be by LAA Domenic Maglieri who will discuss "Sonic Boom: A Review of Six Decades of Research".

NASA Langley provides an excellent website on public cultural resources at the Center. Please visit Public Cultural Resources.

Next LAA Meeting (s)

Set your calendars for Tuesday, January 13, 2015, and plan to enjoy a talk by Dr. Joe/Shirley Rehder talk about “Around the World in 2013: Four months, nine countries, 29 flights: Experiences in making and planning our own arrangements in trips around the world, Part I”. Part 2 will be given at our meeting on February 10, 2015. There will be a Board meeting after the talk in January to elect new Officers for 2015. Also, remember that our meeting will take place in the new NACA Room in the new NASA cafeteria.
