Plane ride

Kylee Howard, 8, took to the skies over Rancho Murieta with pilot Frank Storm at Sunday's Young Eagles event at RM Airport. Blue skies and perfect flying weather brought out a record-breaking 42 children for the free airplane and helicopter rides offered by the Rancho Murieta Aviators and other volunteer Experimental Aircraft Association aviators. The aircraft association established the Young Eagles program in 1992 to provide young people from 8 to 17 years of age with an introduction to flying, and the aviators' club hosts the events several times a year. In addition to their Young Eagle membership certificate, children received a pen in the shape of an airplane as a memento of their adventure. "It's good for the kids and the community," said pilot Wally Boeck, who coordinates the events for the club. Read more » about Up, up and away

RMA Building

The ghosts and witches came out Friday night, and they all headed over to the Rancho Murieta Association Building for a bingo party. Ghosts greeted bingo players at the entrance to the RMA, and inside everything was orange and black, with tombstones and spiders thrown in for good measure. The cookies were ghosts and witches' hats, and the Recreation Committee made their own version of a tasty (and potent) witch's brew. Read more » about Mixing bingo and boooooooo
