From Wayne Mooneyham, President
It’s that time of the year again - days are getting shorter, autumn leaves are changing colors and falling like rain - summer is over. Other things also happen about this time every year - like changing our clocks to Standard Time; families gathering for special days - Election Day - November 6th, Veteran’s Day - November 11th; Hanukkah - December 3rd; Thanksgiving and then onto Christmas - it’s a busy but wonderful ending for 2018. In the midst of all these celebrations we have our own Association elections. We have a slate of well qualified individuals that the Nominating Committee has vetted and are recommending at this month’s meeting - Wednesday, November 7th. Nominations will also be accepted from the floor.
Since this is a gifting and receiving time of the year, it is an excellent opportunity to consider donating to our Scholarship Program in order to help a deserving youth in their endeavors to pursue a career in aviation. Please keep in mind that our Association is a 501(c)3 organization for tax purposes. And, say… wouldn’t an engraved brick for the Bud Anderson monument, with a personalized inscription on it, look rather “keen” (an old school term) out there with Bud’s statue presiding over it?
As a closing note just to keep things in perspective, I have a quote that we can all live by… “Remember you are just an extra in everyone else’s play” (Franklin D. Roosevelt)
Wayne Mooneyham, President
