BioQuip's 26th Holiday Open House

 The BioQuip 26th Annual Holiday Open House had a great turn-out. Many LES members and their families attended this fun affair and brought with them their own display cases for The Ultimate Show-Yours!

Thanks to all the great people at BioQuip for hosting such an event.

 The BioQuip Showroom was as busy as ever.

 Aric Mellott and Jerri Larson busily working behind the counter attending to customers.

Authors of Moths of Western North America, Jerry A. Powell and Paul A. Opler, had book signing sessions throughout the day.
