Thanks to member Bob Taylor pushing through the paper-work, Chapter 846 is now officially a 501c3 non-profit. This is exciting because it offers a variety of benefits:* Exemption from federal and/or state corporate income taxes
* Discounts on US Postal bulk-mail rates and other services
Thanks, Bob for all your hard work!
Board members: Don't forget about Wednesday's Board Meeting at 7 pm at Skypark. We'll be finalizing plans for the year's activities including the Ford Tri-Motor visit, Chapter Fly-In, etc.
Many thanks to all who helped at the Piston Power Show this weekend at the I-X Center. Chapter members Jeff Paden, Dave and Kym Lucas and Gary Baker, with help from Randy Brooks and EAA member Walt Halloran, shared their aircraft, introduced attendees to EAA and offered airplane rides on Young Eagles Day. It was a busy, exhausting and productive weekend. Thanks to all!
Many thanks to March's speaker Bill Meixner who presented a program on the history of the National Air Races in Cleveland. It was full of tidbits which members found interesting about heyday of air racing in Cleveland.
Chapter 846 offers a scholarship to a teenager between the ages of 16 and 18 to attend the nine-day Air Academy Camp July 14-22, 2015 at Oshkosh, WI. We had three outstanding candidates and the membership had a very difficult task to select the scholarship winner. Congratulations to all who applied, and especially to scholarship winner, Ricky Fulkerson.
