LPB You are invited to the first meeting of the LPB British Dramedy Society on Sunday, October 14th at 2PM at LPB's studios, 7733 Perkins Road in Baton Rouge. The all-new LPB British Dramedy Society is being underwritten through the generous support of Peoples Health.

We will preview upcoming programs, discuss British TV, have some fun and games, plus we'll have bunches of door prizes. The Londoner in Baton Rouge will graciously be providing the refreshments.

Admission is free for members of Friends of LPB - just $5 for non-members. To RSVP or for more information, email .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) or call (225) 767-4276 or (800) 272-8161, ext. 4276.
