   Saturday, April 2, was sort of a return of the missing. Tony Pinto appeared for the first time since his knee replacement back on February 14. He walked into the library without the need of a cane or wheelchair. He has lost a bit of weight. It was great to welcome him back. Randy Hawkins returned as well. He is recovering from back surgery. The other Randy, Randy the Marine from Texas, appeared out of the blue. He is in town to care for his mother and will remain until Mother’s Day.

   We had a couple of visitors from Fresno on April 2 who had learned of the museum from the website, were in the area, and decided to check us out. John Bushoven is a professor at Fresno State University in the Agriculture Science department. His wife, Karin Chao, is the director of research at California Health Science University in Fresno. Both were surprised at the size of the museum and are now very enthusiastic supporters.

   A group from Adventure Church of Yuba City visited the museum on Sunday, April 3, to provide chores and cleaning services. Many areas of both buildings were cleaned. All the case front glass was cleaned. A faulty electrical breaker was discovered. Tom Taum, one of the church volunteers and an electrician, offered to repair it. He returned later in the month and fixed it.

   The board of directors met on Saturday, April 23. The splitting of Roberta’s personal property from the museum 501(c)(3) and developing the museum’s donation program were discussed.
