DASTOW '04: Wings and Wonders

A record turnout of some 400 employees and family members gathered for the annual group portrait in front of Wilson Hall.

Thursday, April 22, 2004: Daughters and Sons to Work Day at Fermilab took flight from its first moments and soared through the day. In a record turnout, some 400 employees and family members were charmed by an early bird walk with Peter Kasper; awed by the beauty of butterflies in Tom Peterson's presentation; thrilled by a simulated helicopter rescue, courtesy of the Fermilab Fire Department and LifeStar helicopter service of Loyola University Hospital; gratified by their work in planting trees in celebration of Earth Day; filled by a hot dog lunch; enlightened by demonstrations at the Leon Lederman Science Education Center; chilled by Jerry Zimmerman's super-cool Cryo Show, and transported back to prairie days by a visit to the buffalo pasture with veteran herdsman Don Hanson.
