Del Airs Prove To Be Most Popular Once Again!!

The Del Air Rockhounds booth once again proved to be the most popular attraction at the Our Community Charter School's Spring Fair. The day was sunny and bright and not too hot with a nice cool breeze blowing all day long. Del Air members showed up in force to help man the booth. A big and hearty THANK YOU goes out to Bob & Maxine Dearborn, Julie & Oscar Marin, Hiro Matsuo, Len & Ethel Hellenthal, Jeff Dengrove, Bob Knox and Chris Ward. A very special THANK YOU goes out to Ben Fullon and Richard Quezada, two potential new Del Air members, who sacrificed their time to help us out on this event. Ben spent the entire day manning the "What Is It" table helping youngsters and grown-ups alike identify the many amazing rocks we had on display. Richard wasted no time getting down and dirty with the tile saw and in no time was quickly slicing open geodes like a pro. Their participation is greatly appreciated.

As always, the "Spin-a-Wheel", manned by Ethel, Len and Hiro attracted quite a few people as well as the "Paint Your Own Dinosaur Claw" table expertly handled by Julie, Oscar and Maxine. Bob Knox lent a hand wherever and whenever it was needed. Myself, Jeff, Bob Dearborn and Richard worked the geode cutting table. We all had a blast and ended up raising a goodly amount of money for both the school and our club as well.
