Fund Raiser

One of the ways that our Air Explorer Squadron’s sponsor, the North Hollywood Optimist Club, would raise money was through an annual dinner that they put on each summer.  One of the club members had a vary large home and yard which he donated for this event.  It was a large affair, completely catered and well lit with outdoor lights.  There was a band for dancing after dinner.

Our bunch from the Squadron were often invited to help out at this dinner.  I’m sure there were other duties, but the one I remember most was parking cars.  Since this event was held in a residential neighborhood, the cars were parked for blocks in all directions so we boys would position ourselves out in front, in our uniforms, to offer our services to arriving guests.  Since many of the attendees were wealthy, it afforded us the opportunity to drive some pretty swanky vehicles.
