Dear Friends of LUMCON

In the days since Hurricane Ida, I have had the privilege to see the very best of people; including staff members who have lost their own homes volunteering to get essential supplies to others. Whereas we are not on a normal schedule or routine at LUMCON, we are doing our very best to support our staff members and our local community in any way, shape, or form.
