It’s Pancake Time, People!

Join us at the Chapter Building on April 8th & 9th for our annual Spring Pancake Breakfast. Our Master Chefs will again be operating our amazing rotating pancake cooker, and we will have all of our usual food and beverage to accompany those wonderful cakes. Tickets will be available at the door or in advance from any Chapter member. $7 for adults and $3 for children. We start cooking early, so you can come between 7am and noon and eat until you are full. Saturday will also be a Young Eagles Rally, but the kids may not want to eat too much before they fly, ok? Watch this space for updates and additional details.

Ready, Set…Fly!

It may seem cold, snowy and blustery outside, but before you know it will be March 11th, our first Young Eagles Rally of the 2017 season. Yes, folks, we are gearing up for another year of introducing new friends to the joy of flight and seeing old friends again. There may be some exciting new developments, so watch this space as the date gets closer to make sure you don't miss anything.

For those of you who are unfamiliar with our Young Eagles Program, it is an opportunity to introduce youth ages 8-17 to flight. We provide a ground school class where we learn some of the science behind flight and follow that with a donated ride in a private plane. We have Young Eagles Rallies at Racine the second Saturday of each month, March through November, and even if the weather is inclement, we will still have ground school and still offer the chance to try out our professional grade simulator(s).

If you have questions, watch this space or email our Young Eagles Coordinator at milltracy@hotmail.com.
