      Lucia Saitta has taken first place in growing the largest lemon at the Orange County Fair for 6 years. This year, she was the division winner of all the cirtrus fruits. Her lemon was about 7 inches round. You will be surprised to learn her secret of growing such big lemons. Lucia thinks they grow so big due to the lack of water.

        We are super proud of the 1980 Brea Olinda High School grad. She makes lemonade out of lemons. Lucia was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis 8 years ago. Many days she is extremely tired and forces herself to get out of bed. She continues to exercise in order to feel better. Lucia braved entering her first triathlon this past April. "PossAbilities Triathlon" to support challenged "disabled" athletes and that program through Loma Linda University. She said it was an amazing event and placed 1st in the Les Autres Division (those suffering from MS, MD and various other brain and autoimmune diseases.)
