After President Ray thanked Karen Burgesser for providing flowers for almost every meeting, the Justice Of Your Club (JOYC) recognized several Sunrisers for recent exploits. The victims included Karen Burgesser, Jeff Stebbins, Ed Christians, Tami Camper, Malinda Damme, Tomas Chavez, Andreas Krause, and Brett Watson.

Muralist Lucas Thornton Tells How It’s Done!
Lucas Thornton was our Featured Speaker at Friday’s meeting. He has painted many murals that grace Humboldt County, and he shared his process – from creating a design and then transfering it from a relatively small piece of paper to the wall of a building. In the case of the Arcata Bay Crossing Building on Samoa Boulevard, the wall was very large indeed!
