LBOC members were challenged by long time member Dean Upshaw aka “Man about Town” and retired architect, to wear red noses to a meeting for a photoshoot for Red Nose Day. The photo was shown on the NBC Red Nose Day Special. In addition to our noses we were entertained and informed by Indian Motorcycle of Lafayette who brought the new “Slingshot” for members to experience. RED NOSE DAY <<info

LBOC members helped children from the Lafayette Boys and Girls club with race day preparations on their cars. Gary Buttry organized the effort and helped with race day on June 20, 2015. Racers are required to tear down and re-assemble the race cars, where the LBOC’s help was needed most. More information on the Soap Box Derby program can be found here. <click.
