1984 - The NCCOA

The history of the LPSRA is cloudy.  Certain dates, certain people are key to our history.  Yet, like other things of the past there are various stories and differing opinions.  This makes retelling the history difficult at best and sometimes leads to errors in remembering the facts. 
It is the opinion of this author that the exact facts are not always necessary.  History is always biased and often retold through the eyes of people who where there and have stories to tell.  These stories actually give the flavor, the feeling, the emotion of the event, time and personalities involved.
If you have a story to share from the past that helps shape the history of our association please pass it on to the webmaster or LPSRA Board member for inclusion on this page. Read Moreā€¦
