Photos: Live Oak In Action

A great group of adults and kids (including some visitors from Denmark) decorated and rode in a SF Trolley in Alameda's July 4th Parade this year (2018). A couple of the kids passed out little American flags and bookmarks with info about Live Oak to the crowds. And one Live Oak'er walked ahead of the trolley greeting folks and waving a large rainbow flag!

See lots more photos from this parade.

A great crowd -- members and friends -- enjoyed our second annual Celebration Dinner on September 9, 2017.

We shared a great Italian dinner, a mysterious magic show, and community singing, as well as conversation and camaraderie. Enjoy some photos of this event.

See a few more photos from this delightful evening.

Games Night and Burrito Bar -- a huge success! Twenty-seven people enjoyed burritos, followed by lots of games: Yahtzee, Chicken-feet Dominos, Pandemic, Apples to Apples, Banangrams, and Spot It. If you missed this Games Night, have no fear! There's another coming September 20! Woot.

Take a look at photos from this event!

Fun fact: Zsuzsa is wearing a Live Oak UU t-shirt.
