Bennett Arnstein, Helen Sperber, Jim Cowling, John Andrisan, and yours truly were the stalwarts.
A woman, Susan, dropped in, having looked us up. She shared a moving story about her deceased high school son and how he had folded a heart for a young girl. She came in hopes of learning a simple heart that she could teach to school kids, honoring her son. John taught her one while Jim multitasked folding a heart box which I was teaching; and at the same time drew diagrams for Susan while John taught her the heart model.
Akiko Yamanashi's Heart Box was a great model from several years ago (came out in an issue of NOA- I'm too lazy to dig it up); but neither Jim nor Helen remember ever having folded it before.

We had another newcomer drop in, a young boy named Daniel, along with his father and sister. He'd been folding for about 2 years on his own. Jim taught him a killer whale and John taught the LaFosse F-14 Tomcat. The dad, Javier, sat with Bennett who taught him some models.
