What’s Next ? Summer 2024



Brief Business Update

~ Three new members joined during June – welcome!
~ Air Conditioning install completed and working well
~ Brian Wheeler welcomed as new Facilities Manager
~ Flew 13 Young Eagles in June
~ Pancake Breakfast brought in $848, serving 140 delicious breakfasts
~ Air Show Hot Dog sale brought in a whopping $3,791, serving 600 delicious Hot Dogs. Well done Hot Dog team!
~ Strong overall financials continue, balance of $19,451
~ Board is considering restarting Flight Training Scholarships following strong overall balance plus donation from EAA National
~ EAA National demoted the Chapter to ‘Silver’ achievement level in the Chapter Recognition program as we didn’t send anyone to the National Leadership Training in 2023. EAA240 Board Members met with National leadership to contest and protest this outcome, without result. Apparently, operating a highly successful Chapter despite the considerable and repeated restrictions of TFR’s has no bearing on National’s assessment. More information here.
~ Notes of Chapter Board Meetings and Financial Summaries are posted in the ‘Members Only’ area of the web site
