Greetings all,

I want to thank those who have already volunteered to help us out with our Annual Fly-In this Saturday, May 20th and remind you to check in at the Ticket Booth when you arrive, so I can check you in.

I also wanted to reach out to those who have yet to volunteer or those who know people who would like to volunteer to let you know we still need help with the Hot Air Balloons starting at 7:00 am as well as additional help between 7:30 am-3:30 pm working in the Children's Area helping kids make and fly paper airplanes, in the Kitchen both preparing meals and selling drinks, in our Gift Shop help to sell merchandise, around the museum monitoring the flow of people in and out of exhibits,and helping to administer surveys of attendees.  We could use help at the end of the day 3:00 pm-6:00 pm cleaning up the event-taking down tents,fencing, tables and chairs, removing garbage and overall area clean up.

If you are interested or know people who are interested, please have them contact me or show up at eh Ticket Booth on Saturday and check in.  We would love to have you there.  It is a lot of fun and a great way to get a few community service hours, for people in need of them.

As an aside, the EAA (Santa Clara County, California Chapter of the Experimental Aircraft Association ) is offering free plane rides to kids 8-17 between 10:00 am-2:00 pm.
