This being May our next chapter meeting will be on the 3rd Sunday (May 19th) rather than the second Sunday. This is a long-standing chapter practice so that members can celebrate Mother’s Day.
The Cincinnati West Airport I67 will be hosting its first cookout of 2019 this Saturday, May, 11th. There is a flyer attached for reference – click image.

OCTOBER MEETING Suggestion
It has been our practice in past years to hold our October meeting off-site to avoid the traffic associated with the Waynesville Sauerkraut Festival.
My suggestion is to make a trip the visit Hawthorn Hill, the Wright Home in Oakwood. This historic home was completed after the death of Wilbur, and was the home to Orville, his sister Katherine and their father Bishop Milton Wright.
The home is now managed by Dayton History and tours gave available on Wednesdays and Saturdays. This, of course, would mean moving our meeting to Saturday. Information can be found on their website – Cost of the tour is $12.00, a $6.00 upgrade includes admission to Carillon Park. A feature of Carillon Park is Wright Hall which house the restored 1905 Wright III Flyer. Generally considered the first practical aircraft. Because of parking restriction in Oakwood all tours are by bus and originate at Carillon Park.
I have toured Hawthorn Hill in the past and learned many interesting and significant facts about the Wright family. If there is sufficient interest I will check with Dayton History about groups and limit to tour sizes.
I’ll see you on May 19th.
