Work day at Aviation City

Hurricane Irma left a lot of debris down at Aviation City, we have removed some but will need some help to cut and trim some high branches that got damaged but did not fall. We would like to have a volunteer work day on Saturday October 7th. If you can help us out for a few hrs that would be great. Friends will supply Pizza for lunch after. If you have tree pruners on a pole and or loppers please bring them. The plan is to begin about 9am.  Hope you can give us a hand.

We are still raising funds for the new restroom/shower facility and have about 75% of what we need to begin construction. We do have a couple of grants pending and we will not know until mid December if those will pan out or not. We thank all of you that have donated to our capital campaign for this project. We will have a nice plaque on the site once done to show all donors.  .  If you have not already donated it is not to late to do so and have your name included on the plaque.  See below for current list and let me know if your name is not listed properly or is missing please.
