- The Purple Foxes (Squadron VMM364) have been in operation since the Vietnam Era. FVRC has been helping the Foxes since December 2014. Erika, Lt McDonald, and Sgt Maj Wilson presented Squadron Letters of Appreciation to Club Members who helped with their Open House BBQ (April 1st). Members spent the day delivering food, helping with the setup, serving food (about 300 people), and cleaning up. Kudos to Eric, Steve, Erica, Debbi & Charles. You guys are awesome. As a special treat - everybody that went got to fly the Osprey simulator. There was some smack flying around about who did and didn’t crash. I guess we’ll never know.
- John Nunn, Olympic Race Walker.
- There was a bit of a different program today. Candace Singh spoke about the Fallbrook elementary school district. Some of the items Candace said were:
- Maie Ellis Elementary School has reopened this year and has 600 dual language students.
- 4-8th grade technology students all have their own “Chrome Books”. The plan is to provide all grade schoolers with “Chrome Books” eventually.
- Many school busses now have Wi-Fi access.
- 10-12% of students do not have Wi-Fi access. The school district is partnering with Time Warner in this area in an attempt to get Wi-Fi in all students’ homes.
- Candace handed out books (The Leader in Me) to Club members. She said this is the first school district in the U.S. to be identified as a “Leader”.
- “Panda Cares” has donated about $600,000 to schools here and has been a great community partner. They want to address the whole child and inspire leadership at an early age.
- Frazier & Maie Fay Elementary schools have been recognized as “Light House” schools. There are only 6 schools in California with this esteemed designation.
- The Three Musketelos presented “Now & Ben” to the Club with a short quiz afterwards. Brett, Karen & Sandy won gift certificates to the Yogurt Palace for their correct answers.
- Kids from the local schools wrote many cute “Thank you” notes to the 3 Musketelos for their wonderful presentations.
