Chairman’s Corner

As the old saying goes, “nothing free in life is truly free.”  Our grant from the state of Washington to construct a new building in cooperation with the CAP has involved a lot of work to date, and as one can see when visiting the museum, there is no building nor any sign of construction.  That is about to change!  The CAP and MMA are very close to commencing the ground breaking and erection of a very nice facility.  Countless hours have been spent by your board members, the local CAP and Sen. Jim Honeyford to make this work.

Otto and Art

Several of our exhibits honor area people who served in World War II, most of whom are no longer with us. One such departed veteran is Otto King, 93, who died March 19 in Kennewick, where he had been living in a retirement home. A frequent visitor to the museum before moving, Otto is included in an exhibit honoring those who flew “the Hump.”

And, we have a volunteer who is very familiar with the subject of another exhibit because  he “was there.” Art Goehner (pronounced Gainer) was in the Navy during World War II, serving aboard a seaplane tender in the Aleutian Islands. Art, who recently turned 91,  isn’t personally part of the exhibit, but he has supplied some of its elements.  Art normally is in the museum between 2 and 4 p.m. Saturdays and very much enjoys relating his WWII experiences. So come in and visit with him.
