The City of Jurupa Vallley will declare the week of April 15-21 "Space Week" at their April 19, 2012 regular city council meeting.

Students at Flabob Airport's aviation school will be conducting a ham radio conversation with an astronaut aboard the International Space Station 
that week. "I am so excited to participate in the radio communications with the Space Station," declared mayor Laura Roughton. "I would like to
have the students who are participating in the event come to the council meeting and be recognized, as well as Flabob's Kathy Rohm."

The city proclamation acknowledges that space technology is used in the solution and resolution of problems of regional, national, and global 
significance and the applications of space research are used for economic, social, and cultural development - and also specifically cites the efforts of 
the students at The Tom Wathen Center's Flabob Airport Preparatory Academy, who have spent months learning about space exploration while 
preparing for their amateur radio contact with the ISS.

This city council meeting will be held at 7PM on April 19, 2012, at the Jurupa Unified School District Board Chambers located at 4850 Pedley Road, 
Jurupa Valley, CA 92509. The city's Web site is - http://www.jurupavalley.org
