Greetings to the LAA family.

The LAA Annual Picnic was held on Tuesday, July 8, 2014, on the Reid Center picnic grounds, from 4:30 pm to 7:30 pm and was very successful and enjoyed by all. The picnic was for all NASA retirees, and contractor retirees who served 5 years or more with Langley, and spouses and guests. The menu included burgers, hot dogs, barbecue and slaw by Ira Abbott,potato chips, baked beans, and soft drinks.

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