A Successful Presentation; Fun Times Ahead

Right after work Monday night (6 June) , I headed to Hazelwood Baptist Church in Hazelwood for the weekly meeting of Saint Louis Composite Squadron 1, Civil Air Patrol (CAP) (http://www.stl1cap.com/). I made a presentation to the Squadron's deputy commander for cadets and two other officers about both the Missouri Aviation Historical Society (https://moavhist.org/) and the Gateway Chapter, International Plastic Modelers' Society (http://www.ipms-gateway.com/) and how these groups can help the CAP Squadron with aerospace education for their school-age cadets. Later that night, the leaders asked me to address the cadets on these organizations, which I did, and flyers and membership applications for both groups were distributed. I was told that the unit's leaders were most impressed by my presentation. I look forward to hearing more from the CAP in the weeks to come.

Flexing out of work Tuesday afternoon, I came home and relaxed. That night, I watched the USA men defeat Costa Rica, 4-0, in the Copa America Centenario (http://www.ca2016.com/), this kept the Americans in the hunt for a quarterfinal berth. Last night, I saw on TV Brazil's 7-1 defeat of Haiti. I'm pulling for both the USA and Brazil, though they could meet in the quarterfinals.

Worked hard at work yesterday, as we were a bit short staffed. Still, things are going well at our branch.

Off work today, I wisely stayed inside as much as possible, due to heat. It's is just over 90 degrees F (32 degrees C). Highs should be in that area for the next few days. It is definitely summer here in St. Louis!

Off for another volunteer shift tonight at Circus Flora (http://circusflora.org/). Their show "Pastime" is in full swing, so I hope to see you there! Also, this Sunday afternoon, I hope you can come out to 3rd Annual Festa Junina Brazilian folk festival at the Kirkwood Community Center. It will have traditional Brazilian food and drinks, square dancing, carnival games, and more I will help at one of the booths at the event, which is being presented by Viva Brasil St. Louis (http://www.e.vivabrasilstl.org/home); their website has more info on the Festa Junina.

Before I forget: I'll also be at the next Saint Louis FC (http://saintlouisfc.com/landing/index) match this Saturday night at 7:30 pm vs Tulsa Roughnecks.
