Building Fund

This is a report on our fundraising progress for the new showers & restrooms.  As you know we have been seeking donations and grants to help us fund the project. We are blessed to have strong support among our members and donations have proven to be very encouraging. We started just a few months ago and are seeing good progress.
Friends board of directors would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our donors to date that have sent checks by listing them here.


Robert Obert, $100;  Mosaic Fertilizer, $1,500;  Pat Hange, $25; Swaine & Harris PA, $100; Harry Coleman, $100; Paul Moore, $50; Arcadia Computer, $100. A sincere thank you to these great supporters.    A special thank you today to George & Betsy Matthews for a recent check of  $4,000  to show their strong support for Aviation City and the restroom/shower project ! 


We would like to thank all of you that have made a cash donation at one of our pancake breakfasts as well. We respect your request to stay anonymous.  At this time all of our pancake breakfast profits are going into the building fund as well and we will continue to seek grants and more donations until we can raise the necessary funds.  This will not be an easy task as we will need over $40,000 to make this happen. No donation is too small to help us reach our goal, so please keep us in mind and remember you can deduct the full amount of your donation or grant.


We will have an update on our progress on the grant front in the near future.


The next Florida flying season begins in October and runs through April with our Famous ” ALL YOU CAN EAT PANCAKE BREAKFASTS” which will be held on the 3rd Saturday of each month. So mark your calendars now and don’t miss any chance to spend some time at Arcadia Airport and Aviation City, the most unique Fly-In/Camp-Out Center anywhere !


Thanks to everyone, with your help, we can do this !

The Friends Board of Directors
