  Our static display of our models and related gear that we have open to the public at the Illinois Star Mall every year has become almost a winter-time tradition. We will have it again this year, of course, watch for the date, very likely mid-February and mark your calendar. It always is a good time for us and there are sure to be crowds of visitors again. Hey, take a look at our website coverage of last year’s show. It was a doozy! This spring, however, it came to us that we had not had a fun-fly for several years.

  Also, it actually had been some time since we had our last charity fun fly, about five years, maybe, so, recognizing that many of our neighbors need help in these tight-belt times, we decided to have a food-and-fund-raising flying event at the our field. A local food pantry, the Marion Ministerial Alliance, has been a leader in this very necessary community work, so they were a logical choice for us as co-operators in setting up our fly in.
