Weekly Update - 05June to 11June

Greetings all! This week has seen parties, progress and fun! We had our Awards Banquet on Sat the 6th of June (D-Day + 65 years). Joining us was Ray Nagell, a veteran of the 101st Airborne Division who landed on Omaha beach D-Day + 1. He had some very interesting stories, and we were grateful to have him be a part of it! We will be posting award winners in an up-coming Straight and Level newsletter, so keep an eye out for that in the near future! The hangar was filled with workers Saturday, while the bomber was off to Manitowac, Wisconsin. Work was performed on the Link and Dehmel trainers, the PT-22 continued with engine install work, the drone is getting closer to complete, and the Harvard got its brakes bled. Sunday we had a group go to Grand Old Days in St. Paul to sell pop and raise money for the Wing. Although it was a little cold, we had a great time! On Wednesday, in a leap forward, our members worked together to install the hangar signs! Thanks Guys, it looks terrific!!!!
As always, a great big THANK YOU to all the members and volunteers who make this possible!
