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.
