After an uneventful early flight from Burbank to Salt Lake City, which is a very good thing, I arrived at the airport. Luggage was waiting and had an easy walk over to the Light Rail Green Line that would journey me on a 20 minute scenic ride through downtown Salt Lake to my Little America Hotel.

Good times and much needed catching up was the scene at our Memorial Weekend picnic held for the first time at Lacy Park in San Marino. The location for our gathering was in a beautiful shaded area of Lacy Park so with blue skies and cool temperatures – we couldn’t have asked for a better setting! A big thank you to our President, Heather Lehr for arranging the location and gathering!
Here is the 411 for our picnic, which will be in lieu of our usual meeting. Our chapter will be supplying sandwiches as a main course along with beverages and paper goods. The rest will be potluck, so please let Jenna know what you will be bringing! You can send her an email as mentioned on our Yahoo Groups picnic thread or use the Contact Us form to let us know.

As President Heather Lehr explained, our goal was not to march against anyone or anything, but rather to show our support for government-supported research, while spreading awareness about hearing loss and hearing loss technology.
