"June Gloom" exists and flourishes around Cadeje.
Most pilots went to Loreto for fuel and then on to Cadeje. Weather
for both legs of the June trip was fine except for the coastal
The Saturday coastal fog prevented the Mulege
planes from arriving until after 10 a.m. There were more
medical patients than we anticipated so we worked until 3:30
afternoon. Eric McFarland and Myra Cochran were very busy and
a couple of minor surgical procedures. The teamwork we had
allowed us all to experience a great clinic.
Groff and Aurelia Wallace were kept busy until the final
moments. Twenty nine patients were dispensed glasses.
Many were also given sunglasses. Thanks for all the donations
of eyewear from so many people.
DENTAL CLINIC NOTES
it was a late start due to the fog, the clinic went well.
Mel Schwartz performed extractions
Rick Rouasavelle, Dennis Dierenfield, and Stu MacPherson
did fillings. They were assisted by Malisa Harrison,
and Christina Wright (from Hotel Cuesta Real). Don Zellet
did a great job in triage while Larry Cochran sterilized
instruments. All sixteen patients were seen and left smiling.
Don Bates and Jim Gaskin worked on the school's water supply
and brought an electrical switch which will
at a later trip. This switch will allow school use
of the town generator when it is available.
