EAA Chapter 25 November Activities

Filed under: Uncategorized — kjohnson at 4:34 pm on Wednesday, November 21, 2018

**Note** This month’s meeting is being moved from 11/21/2018 to Wednesday, 11/28/2018 due to the Thanksgiving Holiday - This month’s meeting will be at our Chapter hangar, the Bert Sisler Aviation Education Center (BSAEC) at Airlake Airport in Lakeville, MN. The presenter is Jay with Great North AutoGyro, a new local Gyrocopter sales and instruction business.

We need to finalize our slate of officers and vote at our November meeting. If you are interested in serving as a Chapter 25 officer next year, please contact a current officer and inform him of your interest so you can be included as a candidate. Final voting for 2019 officers will occur at our November meeting.

A host is needed for our Chapter 25 Christmas Party. Contact President York if you are willing to share your home for this joyous occasion.

Tree of Hope Donation Opportunity
The MN Pilots Assn is asking pilots to provide a gift for children who find themselves in the hospital this Christmas season. Gifts will be collected on Saturday, December 1, 2018 from 9 am to 1 pm at the Maple Lake Municipal Airport (KMGG). This is a wonderful opportunity to “pay forward” to our communities by donating an unwrapped toy gift for the Tree of Hope. These gifts will be distributed to a total of 40 hospitals in MN, and all Ronald McDonald Houses in MN. There are several drop off points for your convenience. This is a unique opportunity for members of the aviation community to do something very positive for our communities. Please check out Facebook Tree of Hope – MN, or contact Elaine Morrow at [email protected], or call her cell 952-913-2356.

The Chapter 25 grill gets fired up at 6 pm on 11/28/2018, meeting starts at 7 pm with a speaker beginning at 7:30 pm. Bring a side dish to pass at the BBQ pot luck. The Chapter will furnish the meat, buns, beverages, condiments, hardware and napkins. A $5 donation is suggested to cover the cost. All aviation enthusiasts are welcome!
