We will be having a work party at the club house tomorrow, Wednesday July 7th at 6:00pm to clean up the club house after the Young Eagles event. This is also to prepare the space for the Larry Davis memorial scheduled for July 17th.

Shelly Humble will be providing pizza for all.

Please note the time change from the previous posting.

This will also be a great opportunity to go over our Young Eagles event and share what people thought worked well and what we could do better.

Chapter 31 July meeting, Wednesday 7/07/2021

There will be no formal meeting on Wednesday, July 7th.

HOWEVER, we do need have a clean-up party which we will do on Wednesday, July 7th at 7:00pm. This will be to reset the club house after the Young Eagles event. If we can have at least 4 people for this, we could make quick work of it.

This would be a good time to clean up as the Larry Davis memorial service is scheduled for July 17th from 11:00 to 2:00 and will be held at the Chapter 31 club house.

And on another note, thank you all for the Young Eagles help. From my perspective, things went really well. We also know what we can do to smooth the flow of registration and ease the stress of the registrar in the future. We flew just over 40 kids. Thank you all again for making Young Eagles happen.

Larry Davis

It is with sadness that I report that Larry Davis passed away today at the adult care home where he was living! He lived right up to the very end. He went to lunch on Sunday with his son David, and went to lunch with Milon Whittier and Dave Cole yesterday. Following yesterday’s lunch Milon brought Larry the the Creswell Airport for his last visit. Milon told me that Larry’s son is thinking about having some form of memorial gathering at Larry’s house. I’ll keep you posted when I learn more.
