June Young Eagle Rally was a huge hit!
Thank you to everyone who made our June Young Eagle Rally a hit! Working together with the pilots and ground support crew, we introduced aviation to 52 children and their families.
Safety Managers: Tim Hunter, Kris Siuba, Robert Miskewitch, Bob Saxer and one more gentleman whose name escapes me (I apologize for the oversight!)kept all of our guests safe and sound and even found time to take a few photos!
Registration Managers: Ceil May, Robin Lovell, Grace Kohlert, Justina Siuba — great job of registering 52 children in about 30 minutes, printing all of their certificates and keeping us organized! WOW!
Ground School Instructor (and kept us out of the TFR!) Tom Shannon
And, of course, we couldn’t have a flight rally without pilots and planes: Dan Thurnau in his Arrow, Marc Stancy in his 150, Jeff Kohlert in his 140, Wes Lundsberg in a Warrior, and Rose Ellen May & John Chalfant in the Cherokee. Each child who flew had an amazing morning.
Please be sure to read the June newsletter article from chapter president, Ned Richer about the status of young eagle funding. Tim published photos in the July newsletter.
