At this year’s LACBC Holiday Open House we had a slide show instead of the vision boards we assembled last year. LACBC and each Local Chapter contributed slides from this year along with a few of our favorite images. Each chapter was asked to contribute 5 slides.
Our 5 slides from the LACBC Open House Slide Show.
As we gather this holiday season with friends and family, we give thanks for the health and safety of those we hold most dear and look forward to sharing and creating cherished memories with family, friends and neighbors like you!
