On Saturday, August 28th, the National Weather Service in Amarillo hosted a Spotter and Volunteer Appreciation Day and Open House.  Nearly 50 attendees enjoyed a wonderful afternoon of food and fun in the sun.  There were horse rides, free food, and office tours.  Also, Coffee Memorial Blood Center participated in the event and took blood donations in their blood mobile. 

In addition, Ricky Dean was honored with an award for serving as a cooperative observer with the National Weather Service for five years.  Thank you Mr. Dean for your outstanding service!
