Circle V Ranch Camp Welcomed Alumnus Tom Nolan and Volunteers from NASA JPL & Educators Leading Hands-On Science Demos for “Space Day”


On July 13, 2016, more than 175 Circle V Ranch campers ages 7-17 and 50 staff members participated in “Space Day” –a highlight of Session Three Space Week activities. All experienced and discovered STEM (Science, Technology Engineering, and Math) interactive demonstrations from expert volunteers led by Circle V Ranch Camp alumnus (1962-65) Tom Nolan, Operations Engineer with NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory and a group of his colleagues.  (Pictured above left with Nolan), David Fields, Executive Director of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul Council of Los Angeles that operates Circle V Ranch Camp thanked all the volunteer educators and exclaimed, “We are so grateful that you all came here today and shared your passion for science and showed our campers that they can have a career in science, too! Thank you, Tom Nolan, for telling us we all are scientists as long as we are curious!”

Circle V Ranch Camp Director Ray Lopez (pictured upper right with Nolan) remarked “This day was incredible for everyone here. It’s been such a blessing to have these caring people giving so much of their time and talent to inspire us! We are grateful for the map of the lunar landing sites that Tom gave us. Everyone loved the Mars Rover prototype that Tom brought to show us; and even rolled it over some of our counselors!

Vincentian Inspiration

"Duplicity is not pleasing to God and to be truly 
simple we should propose
to ourselves no other end but to please God alone."
St. Vincent de Paul

“La duplicidad no le place a Dios, y para ser 
realmente sencillos debiéramos
proponernos tener no otro fin que el complacer solo a Dios.”

-San Vicente de Paul

Heavenly Father, I ask for a conscience that is sensitive to all the nuances
of honesty and truthfulness.  Forgive my past failures in this regard.

Padre celestial, te pido una conciencia que sea sensible a todos los
requisitos de honestidad y veracidad.  Perdona mis fallas pasadas en esta área.
