This month we honor one of our “3 Days a Week” Volunteers. Doug Corwin tends to the garden area (and the rabbits) in our traffic circle and also helps with the food distribution program. Doug is 72 years old and is an Air Force brat who was born in Eglin Air Force Base, Florida. He bucked the Air Force trend and served in the US Navy for 6 years before moving to Abilene, Texas. While working in the sheet metal business, he met his wife, Susan, who now works at nearby Patton. After moving to California he persisted in the sheet metal business, bought an existing business, and continued with that before retiring and gifting the HSC with his talents. THANKS Doug for your dedication to the HSC.

Featured Activity

We are currently forming an interest list for a Miniatures Club which will meet here at the center. Miniatures are simply scale models of larger objects. Most of us are familiar with scale model trains, cars, airplanes, dioramas, or even doll houses, but there are also models called a room box. Room boxes are just what they suggest. Models of rooms. However they can be interior view, exterior views, or a combination of both.

The group leader will be Noni Axe who is prepared to teach people how to create a minature, from start to finish. Basic tools you would need to bring would be an exacto knife, a fine tip tweezer, and some sharp nose scissors. Anything else would depend on what you intend to build. Some items can be made from household items, while others can be bought. It just depends how what you want to do with it and how simple or elaborate you wish to make it. If this sounds like something you would be interested in please contact us so we can put your name on a list. If we have enough interest you will be called back with a time and date and start putting your hands to work.
