  1. Hello, my name is Rick Beehler,

    I am part of a regional organization of rock clubs. We put on a non-profit rock and gem show each September. Some of the dealers that offer their supplies at our exhibition would like us to have some security there. Is there a possibility that some of your students could get some credit for volunteering their services during the daytime hours of our show?

    This years exibition will be at the Hillsboro Fairplex.
