2017 – Bright Skies
I am very happy to report that 2017 brought beautiful sunshine and we had a chance to get back to the Wings & Wheels event we plan for over a year. We started on Friday with the popular Aviation Education Day, even though weather prompted school closings, we had some die hard students and their families come out to meet with our vendors and panelists. As we moved into our Big Band Show on Friday night, the joint was jumping and not to be outdone, we celebrated roundly the recent 102nd birthday of Doolittle Raider, Lt Col Dick Cole, down to breaking open a bottle of cognac & toasting to fallen comrades. Saturday dawned with sunshine and great weather, cars came, planes came and so did event attendees. Mike Hines & The Look rocked the food court. It was a great day for all of our volunteers, vendors and attendees. 2017 is in the books and 2018 planning has already begun!!
