Thanks to Cynthia Doherty, EAA Chapter 32 now has a GoFundMe account to help with our flood damage repair efforts. GoFundMe is a crowdsourcing site that allows family, friends and even stranger to donate to our cause. Our goal is to raise $15,000 for the repair of our building. Some of the damage includes but is not limited to:

  • Exterior building siding
  • Drywall and insulation that was flooded
  • Loss of furniture, supplies, tools and equipment
  • Loss of fundraising equipment and supplies
  • Loss of safety equipment
  • Damage to utility systems (air conditioner, water heater, etc.)

Go to this link to help us raise the funds needed to return the Aviation Resource Center to full potential:

Chapter 32 Events

  • We are hoping to set up a fabric covering seminar or classes later this year. Due to material cost and preparation items we may have to charge a small fee to cover items such as frames to cover and materials. I would like to keep this no more than $20-$30 for members. It should include basic covering as well as rib stitching. Fellow chapter members will teach this. How many people would be interested? Please contact a chapter officer.
  • We have a number of members who are proficient at MIG and to some degree TIG welding. Please contact Don Doherty on helping with other members learning to weld.
  • Volunteers are needed to help grass cutting once a month. During active growing season the grass needs to be cut once a week. During the dry season this sometimes drops to every two to three weeks. Volunteers need to be checked out on the mower. Cutting time takes about 1.5-2 hrs. Right now we have 2 or three people and need a couple more that are reliable. I would like to spend some of my weekends flying instead of cutting the ARC grass. Please contact Don Doherty.
