YAKIMA CLIPPER quarterly newsletter

Chairman’s Corner

Hard to believe summer is over, but it is. Hopefully, you were able to come out to the museum and attend our Saturday events or just tour the museum.

Lots of new and exciting displays have been created, thanks to all our volunteers’ hard work.

Obviously absent at the museum is the “new addition.” Believe me, this has been a project that started more than a year and a half ago, and we finally are approaching ground breaking. This building will be 80 by 80 feet and located just west of the hangar doors and south of CubCrafters. As you know, it will house the Civil Air Patrol and, we hope, the Yakima Clipper when finished. It is being funded by a grant from the State of Washington and donations from friends and members of the museum. Completion is slated for May 2015.

Last but not least is the annual membership meeting October 29. There are several board positions up for election. We have supplied that information in a newsletter, but be thinking about how you, as a member, can help out the museum by running for office or volunteering. Neither pays very well, but sometimes there is a free lunch. Consider it.
