Flight 23 Fall Pot Luck and Annual General Meeting (AGM)

September 06-2021
 Our thanks to Carol Cooke for her initiative in making all of the arrangements for this and to Ron and Nancy Miller for allowing us to again use their hangar for the dinner.
Prior to the supper, arrangements have been made for our group to visit the North Bay Museum ( the old CPR station (off Oak St at Ferguson St.) and tour the History of Aviation in North Bay exhibit.*  
Link to the museum website “History of Aviation in North Bay” ;
                                          Exhibits — North Bay Museum
The exhibit is in a large room upstairs, and is mainly old photos of the airfield in the early years. We thought it would be a good opportunity for members to visit our local museum, and it’s always fun to go as a group.  Free parking is available in the City lot adjacent to the Museum.
For everyone’s safety, the museum requires masks be worn and - this tour is available to fully vaccinated members only.
In order to advise the Museum how many of our members are going to be attending, please r.s.v.p. before Sept 20 to Carol Cooke by phone at 705-752-2223: or email caron.cooke@gmail.com.   
*Your Executive will be paying museum admission for Flt 23 members and spouses.

MAF-Wings of Hope

May 08-2021

We hope all is well with you and your families especially through these restrictive and challenging Covid times.  We are sure looking forward to be able to socially gather again and see more people face to face.  We wish we could spread this information more with face to face discussions but that is not possible or easy with the current restrictions.

We are helping MAF, Mission Aviation Fellowship, to promote a fund raiser to purchase new aircraft for in Angola, Africa.  MAF is raising funds to replace the 35 year old Cessna Caravan that has been operating in Angola for 35 years. As we will know aircrafts are not cheap to purchase and operate.  This Aircraft purchase will be $ 3,000,000 and MAF has raised over $ 1,000,000 already.

We are seeking anyone who is interested to support this fund raiser to donate any amount, even dollar counts big or small.  At the same time we do not want anyone to feel pressure to donate.

 

Here is a couple links to the MAF, Aircraft Wings of Hope webpage and donation page:

Here is another link to a MAF promotional video if you wanted to learn more about MAF in Angola.

We would be happy to chat on the phone or meet once restrictions are lifted if you are interested in more information and/or have any questions or comments.

Look forward to seeing you soon.

Sincerely,

Chad Miller
