Hayward Executive Airport Open House salutes heroes

Hayward Executive Airport will hold its seventh annual Open House on Saturday, April 26, offering the community a look into the life of the airport and its resources.

Originally a World War II (WWII) fighter base, Hayward Executive Airport is home to over 300 private aircraft. Lifesaving emergency medical flights, law enforcement flights to protect our neighborhoods, and other community services originate at the airport. Hayward Executive Airport is financially self-sufficient, contributing over $300 million in annual economic benefits to the community.

The seeds for the Open House were planted when a group of pilots got together and decided a first-hand look at their operations would be a good outreach to the community, especially to inspire kids to investigate careers in aviation. Invitations were extended to those they knew in the community, and an annual event took root. The City of Hayward has partnered with local organizations to make the event bigger and better, and attendance grows with each year; 3,800 people turned out for last years Open House.

Sheep Shearing Day

Spring has sprung and it is time for the sheep at Ardenwood Historic Farm to receive their annual haircut. Watch as the farms sheep get sheared, try your hand at wool carding and see the transformation from fiber to yarn. Kids will enjoy stories about sheep and making their own wooly lamb to take home.

Ardenwood opened their sheep shearing to the public in 2007 as an opportunity for the community to get in touch with common, world-wide farming practices, and see first-hand part of the process of raising sheep. As you watch the shearing and sheep dog demonstrations, you are taking part in an ancient and fascinating culture. Sheep were one of the first animals to be domesticated (by the year 8000 BCE) and wool clothing goes back 6,000 years.

Currently, there are about 6.2 million sheep in the United States. The U.S. produces over 200 million pounds of lamb and mutton each year, and exports around 14.6 million pounds of wool. Thats enough to make over 7 million sweaters! Wool is used in clothing, hosiery, upholstery, insulation, rugs, tennis balls, bedding products, and clean-up pads for oil and chemical spills.
