Brookings-Harbor High School students study the basics of airplane navigation during a visit to the Brookings Airport this week. The Pilot/Don Iler
About 120 freshmen from Brookings-Harbor High School learned about aviation first hand during a field trip to the Brookings Airport this week.
The field trip, sponsored by the Brookings Flying Club, is intended to spark interest in aviation and aviation careers with students, and to encourage students to apply for the club’s scholarship in the future.
The Brookings Emblem Club 265 held a luncheon and fashion show this past Saturday to raise money for the various charitable causes the club supports.
The luncheon included door prizes and raffles, and afforded members an opportunity to enjoy each other’s company and the various fashions from Chere’s Boutique in Crescent City that Emblem Club members modeled.
Onlookers ducked in excitement as Dan Brattain’s helicopter swooped over the Kite Field at the Port of Brookings Harbor Saturday, dumping thousands of little rubber kitties and puppies onto a target painted on the grass below.
Whomever’s critter bounced closest to the center would win. There would be only one — Meg Claflin of Brookings — to walk away with the $5,000 cash prize. And there were five more swipes to drop 3,000 cats and dogs as part of the Rotary Club’s inaugural Raining Cats and Dogs fundraiser.
