History of the LASFS

As of the creation of this page, the LASFS is coming up on its 89th birthday next month (on Oct. 27th). It is a daunting task to not only chronicle that journey as it happens, but to preserve it before it becomes lost in the mists of time.

Having the task of Webmaster passed to me, it is my responsibility to make sure that the rich treasure trove of photos, written documents and archived texts survives and is made available to the now and future generations visiting this website. It would have been lost, in fact, were it not for the efforts of the former Webmasters Lee and Barry Gold, who took great pains to preserve and back up these precious documents and photos before the inevitable march of evolving technology caused an irreversible crash in the backend software that ran the LASFS website that had served our club for so many years.

Within this section of the website you will discover links to that archive. Sit down when you have some free time – or make that time to get to know your club if you are new, or to reminisce if you are one of the generations that has been active for many years. There is something here for everyone.
