On Saturday, July 14, the OCPC set up a table at the Orange County
Fair in the “Free Expression” zone just outside the main gate. Our
display included our new banner, a 3’x5′ painting showing the damage
drones can do, a poster of Uncle Sam riding a drone, a model of the
Grim Reaper flying an armed drone firing one of its missiles, and a
number of handouts including information on drones.

At our meeting, we decided to expand our presence at the Fair to
include this coming Wednesday, July 18 and the remaining four
Saturdays, July 21, 28, August 4 and 11.

To do this we need volunteers to staff the table, at least two at a
time, from just before opening time (for setup) until 11-12pm (near or
at closing time, including take-down). Staffing shifts are two hours,
but you can volunteer for more.

Come on down and help us make our presence occur. To volunteer for
staffing the table, please contact Pat Alviso mfsooc@earthlink for
Wednesday, July 20 ONLY, or Kurt Aanensen kurtea@yahoo for Saturdays.

We look forward to seeing you there!

First off we would like to thank all the folks who came out and helped out Sunday and supported the teen memorial. If it wasn’t for Richard Madeira and Jack Finley the idea of a teen memorial would not have happened. They deserve a lot of credit for their vigilance in making this memorial a reality and in time for Memorial Day. It was a lot of work, but we think it was worth it. Every group pitched in and it paid off! Our message was heard.

Great coverage from the local Press Telegram on the front page.


Fox 11 news also had coverage on the link below. They were there all day and into the evening and we were surprised at how it all came out.
