Please join us before the Legacy Flight Academy event for some beverages at the Aviator Bar to celebrate the 85th anniversary of the Order of Daedalians! This event will be held on Friday evening of 29 March at the AV8R Bar, co-hosted by the Daedalians and the Legacy Flight Academy Partners from 1830-2030L. Mike Watson, Friend of the Founders Flight and owner of the AV8R Bar, will be recognized for his ongoing support for the Order. We will say a few words about the history of the Order of the Daedalians and the River Region Aviation heritage, then transition to the Legacy Flight Academy. This volunteer organization is rooted in the history of the Tuskegee Airmen and strives to connect young people (especially underprivileged ones) with an opportunity to fly, gain experience with STEM, and to meet people like them who have gone on to careers in aviation and STEM. As a reminder, the Daedalians are co-sponsors for the Legacy Flight Academy events on 29/30 March, which coincides with the 85th Anniversary of the establishment of the Founders Flight, Flight #1 of the Order of Daedalians. We're asking our members to contribute to this worthy cause-- we'll provide special recognition for those contributing at least $85. So far we've collected $1785 toward our fundraising goal of $4000. Those donating $85 or more as of 19 March include Mark Brown, Doug Cairns, JC Carter, Rich Giordano, Ed Hails, Paul Nelson and Al Peck. Please consider a donation if you are able.
