Happy Birthday Porky


If you were not at the airport Saturday October 11, you missed the fun and the opportunity to track down Porky and wish him a happy birthday. 

The tip was on the hangar door. 

Next time you see Brad, er sorry Porky, wish him a happy birthday if you have not already done so.

On Saturday evening Mark Rottler sponsored an outstanding Shrimp Boil at the airport. He had huge U-14 shrimp, andouille sausage, corn on the cob, potatoes and onions. Mona Hansen brought an excellent corn casserole and Tom Hammett prepared some of his special cocktail sauce. Mona topped it off for everyone with some great ice cold watermelon. Thanks to everyone who contributed to this tremendous event.
