Welcome to 2018 and trust all had a safe and enjoyable holiday! We capped off 2017 with an enjoyable dinner at Rawhide Ranch in Nashville with 28 attendees. A light covering of snow provided an uplifting holiday atmosphere, where Dave Timbers was presented a plaque recognizing his long commitment to Chapter 729. Dave has been a part of Seymour’s Freeman Municipal Airport starting in mid-1940’s, as well as Chapter 729 member since formation. To this day, Dave continues to support and give back to aviation in humble ways. A true friend to general aviation, local community and Chapter 729......THANK YOU Dave!
Chapter 729 BOD met early January to start building 2018 calendar which will be posted on website shortly. Goal is to build a variety of initiatives and enhance traditional initiatives, in an effort to provide a robust and (hopefully) multi-interested calendar. Of course, all is anchored around our primary initiative - Young Eagles Flights!
One continued goal from 2017 is to grow membership. We met our goal of growing by 4 new members (total 52) in 2017 and have spoken with 2 individuals joining in 2018. We’re growing, which a number of EAA Chapters cannot say, and is contributed to our members and BOD in building, supporting and creating a growing organization! Thank You for your efforts!!
And as a friendly reminder, dues for 2018 are $20/family and now due. Please contact treasurer Larry Morlock. As a continuation of building EAA Chapter 729, establishing a 501C3 is being
