Luberon et Vin en Provence Sept. 4- 15


In southeastern France…

between Mt. Blanc and Marseilles lies the fabled land of Provence.
And in its midst roll the Prealpine foothills of Luberon.
Running west toward the Rhone valley, its hilltops crowned with medieval villages, its slopes cloaked in oak and beech, valleys draped in vineyards, Luberon is a cyclist’s dream.

John Acuna - Memorial Services, Scholarship, and Celebration of Life

John was our “”go to SAG driver “ and often came with home made chocolates as a treat.

He also organized SOS, a bicycle assembly project to provide assembled bikes for kids.

The celebration of life will be in March, probably March 9th, in Lake Forest.  More details to follow.
