Subject: LCPS - Pleasure Island Help

The LCPS HELP committee has been very busy and is now making plans to help our members and friends in Pleasure Island.   Meet us at 9 AM at the Anchorage on Saturday so we can caravan to Pleasure Island.    Billy is cooking a big meal and planning to serve red beans and rice for lunch to our friends that are working in small community.   We are also going to cook sausage and other finger food on the grill so if have anything we can cook, please bring it.  Harvey is going to bring the music system so that we can play some music and raise the spirits on the island.    Leon can\'t make it but he gave us the burners and small generator.    I am bringing tables and a BIG  cooler full of drinks for everyone.
Also, I would like to thank everyone for their help and support.    So many of you have called or helped in some way.    I know that all of our members in need really appreciate your help in this time of need.
