July’s Words from the President

Well it’s been a while and I must admit the newsletter is late but hopefully full of good information. David Springer our treasurer has done a great job of renewing our Amended and Restated Articles of Incorporation with the State of Colorado and is in progress of filing our IRS required paperwork. He has done so with the help of attorney Patti Arthur of Salida, Colorado. It so happens that with the persistence of David he discovered that Patti assists EAA chapters with filing required documents with State Governments and the IRS. She was extremely helpful in getting us on the right track. We will soon be a full-fledged Non Profit 501.3.c. GREENHORN MOUNTAIN EAA CHAPTER 808. Thanks David!

We will be conducting a Young Eagles Rally on August 26th starting at 7:00a.m at Steel City Aviation. Susan Myhre the Young Eagles coordinator has worked hard to put this together and if you want to participate in some capacity please call her. I know it is short notice for some but we can always use help.

Our chance to make some money for the chapter is coming up during the Fremont County Airshow September 16th as we provide the pancake breakfast for the event. We have several members committed to help but can use more. If you can help, please contact Liz Springer the coordinator for the pancake breakfast.

September is full of aviation activities with some local events and one important one outside of the state:

  • September 8th & 9th  AOPA Fly In Norman, Oklahoma
  • September 9th Calhan, Colorado  – Pig Roast
  • September 16th Fremont County Airshow
  • September 23rd & 24th   Peterson Field Military Airshow with the Thunderbirds and the A-10 !!!!

OUR NEXT CHAPTER MEETING WILL BE OCTOBER 11th

Meeting will take place at the modular building at the Fremont County Airport.

Terrence Terrill.
