Tulare, CA

I would like to report on our fifth annual airport open house. We accepted donations for 160 airplane rides, 50 helicopter rides, and 30 Stearman rides. All in all we raised about $1600.00 after expenses, that we will donate to several local groups including the FFA chapters, the Civil Air Patrol Cadets, and the high school band boosters.

It should be noted that the primary purpose of our open house is to bring people to the airport, not raising money.
