Don’t forget next Saturday Dec. 16 is pancake breakfast day. All the pancakes you can eat plus sausage, OJ & coffee for only $6. All profits go to support the new restroom facility under construction by Friends of Arcadia Airport. We begin serving about 8:30. Please come out and join us for a great day at the airport. Visiting pilots please check our website at http://www.FoAA.us and see the Aircraft Parking tab for diagram of extra places to park as we have a small ramp.
Construction began on Dec. 1 on the new restroom facility with the cement form being built then it was a flurry all this week with on site action. First the plumber doing the underground pipe work followed by the cement crew digging all the big footers. Installation of rebar, spraying for termites, installing the plastic barrier, pouring the cement, building blocks being delivered etc. The plumber arrived early Saturday morning in the cold and rain to install all the above ground pipes. Mid week the City of Arcadia dug and installed the electric and water lines to the site. The plan is to begin laying the block this Wednesday ! Wow what a week. Thanks to Roger Penner of Jewel Contracting for making things happen at this pace. We appreciate it as this is our season and we can sure use the new facility as soon as it is complete.
