Welcome to the LASFS website.  Visitors please see our Welcome Message.

LASFS meets in Freehafer Hall, currently located in the Friendship Hall of the American Lutheran Church, 747 N Whitnall Hwy, Burbank 91505 -- near the intersection of Clark Ave and Hollywood Way (between Magnolia Blvd and Verdugo Ave). There is plenty of street parking and a parking lot behind the church (enter from Screenland Dr).
This move is temporary until we find a better place to rent and/or buy.
At the January 6 meeting of the Board of Directors,  a resolution was adopted to amend the by-laws by substituting the word "Fifteen" for "Twenty-one" in Article II, Section 7 (Quorum).  If approved by a vote of the Society, this will reduce the number of Standard Members required for a quorum from 21 to 15.  The statutory reading of the proposal will take place at the January 31 meeting; the vote will take place one week later at the February 7 meeting (assuming, of course, that a quorum of 21 Standard Members is present).  A two-thirds vote is required for passage.

LASFS meets every Thursday evening, starting around 8 PM, but there's usually something going on before then. After the meeting is over, some members go out for more conversation over a late dinner or midnight snack. Ask members who are leaving the meeting where they're heading.  It's usually Mel's Drive-In, a diner at 14846 Ventura Blvd.
