Sold Out ! Air Show Success for 240

Long lines formed for our Hot Dogs as the New Garden Air & Car Show got underway at 4pm yesterday, Wednesday August 31st. And by 7pm we had sold every food item we had. The EAA240 Hot Dog Tent was a very popular spot, our ‘Airshow Special’ Hot Dogs were in great demand. 

The EAA240 team, led by Chuck Shipman, planned and executed the fund-raising sale, with food purchases, tent set-up, sales, and clean-up. Thanks go to Chuck, Bert, Ken Vance, Lynne and Jay for their volunteer efforts that raised over $1,500 for Chapter funds – which included over $400 in donations and tips from our generous and supporting public. Feedback was very positive, and much fun was had by all.

Thanks also to the EAA240 members who stopped by, enjoyed a Hot Dog with us, and offered support & help.The Air Show Hot Dog banner was created and donated by Paul Dolan.

Other Chapter members assisted with the Car Show and other volunteer activities at the show, team work!

Congratulations also to Jon Martin for his leadership and execution of the first Air Show for many, many months. Well done Jon (EAA240 member!).

The Greater Philadelphia Chapter of Tuskegee Airman, represented by Chapter member Vance, also took the opportunity to make a large and generous donation to the Chapter’s youth programs. Thank you!

All-in-all, this was a great and fun day for aviation, for the airport, and for this amazing Chapter and it’s very special membership. Congratulations and thanks to all who contributed.

Mike Parry, Proud President, EAA Chapter 240
