#162) Photos of the 2018 Reunion are (finally) on YouTube!!!

On October 13, 2018 several Libravets and their guests gathered for Librascope's eleventh bi-annual employee reunion since Lockheed Martin announced Librascope's closing and the relocation of its business to Manassas, Virginia in the late 1990's.

The Reunion was held at The Federal Bar in North Hollywood, and included a delicious buffet luncheon. As always, it was an opportunity to renew old friendships, drink some beer, and reminisce for hours.

Throughout the day, Georgine Archer took several photos, and they were all published on YouTube yesterday. To view the two minute video slideshow, simply CLICK HERE. Please click the "thumbs up" symbol immediately below the YouTube video if you enjoyed it. Thank you!

A list of all the Libravets attending, plus an index to those in the video follows:

#161) Breaking News: Next Librascope Reunion is October 12th!

The following invitation to a special 2019 Librascope Reunion was just issued by Georgine Archer. Note, this is a year earlier than normal.

Dear Libravets,

At the very special request of Bonnie Granger (Supervisor Circuit Board Assembly from 1986 to 1992), who said that she is getting older at the age of 92 and misses companionship with her Libravet friends, I have planned another Libravet reunion. Ralph Simon recommended that we hold it again this year at The Federal Bar in North Hollywood and has set up the arrangements for October 12, 2019. A copy of your invitation is provided below. 

I have sent this message to all Libravets who attended the past two reunions. You may also receive an invitation from Carl's “Librascope Memories – News Blog” that is normally sent to a much wider email distribution list.

I hope you will be able to join us. As we are all getting older, your attendance will make this a very special reunion. Please respond to me by email ASAP so that I can include you in our reservation list.
