EAA Chapter 32 Christmas Party
Saturday, December 14
All Occasion Banquets Center
6pm - 10pm
All current and past chapter members plus their family members and friends are invited and encouraged to attend the EAA Chapter 32 Holiday Banquet. This is a great way to include wives and other family members in an aviation-related activity!
The Annual Holiday Banquet will be held on December 14, 2013 at the All Occasion Banquet Center located at 111 Compass Point Dr, St. Charles, MO 63301. This is the fourth year that the EAA32 Holiday Banquet will be held at this location. The doors open at 6 PM and the party will last until 10 PM.
The evening will include dinner, a program of activities, attendance prizes, a gift exchange, and a 50/50 drawing. Dinner will include a choice of either beef or turkey along with potatoes, green beans, and a couple different types of salad. Each person please bring a gift for the gift exchange as only those who bring a gift will be able to select a gift at the appropriate time.
Tickets for the 50/50 drawing will cost $1 for a single ticket and $5 for six tickets. The holder of the winning ticket receives 50% of the total amount collected for the drawing. The other 50% of the money raised goes to the chapter to help fund next year’s Air Academy Scholarships. What a great deal!
The cost of the party will be $25 a person which essentially covers the chapter’s expenses for using the banquet center. Dress is casual with a holiday flair, but please, no jeans. See you there!
The evening program:
6:00 – 7:00 Social Hour
7:00 – 8:00 Dinner
8:00 – 8:30 Awards and installation of Chapter Officers
8:30 – 9:15 Guest Speaker – Libby Yunger – Women in Aviation Presentation
9:15 – 10:00 Drawings and Gift Exchange
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.
We need some new pictures of Member's Projects. Even if you haven't completed a whole lot on your project, send some new pictures to firstname.lastname@example.org.
