RECORD TURNOUT FOR ANNUAL ‘Kick Off’ PARTY!
Over 60 Airport Customers, Rotarians, Vendors, Pilots, Aspiring Pilots, Café Patrons, Farmers, Friends & Neighbors braved the cold outdoor temperatures, crowded into the warm South Hangar, enjoyed Nancy’s version of Coney Island Hot Dogs, and each other’s company. They came to hear that the state of the airport is “Good” from owner/manager Don McPherson, that the Rotary Club will be hosting ‘Wings and Wheels’ again this year from club President Laura Spear, that pro-aviation legislation has much support in the State House due to aviation’s positive economic impact from Representative Kate Hogan, that Avidia Bank is happy to be financing upcoming airport improvements from President Mark O’Connell and that Steve Budd from Pepperell won this year’s FOMA contest and a $50 gift certificate from Nancy’s at the Airfield for Landing at All Mass Airports in 2013. The highlight of the event was the signing of contracts by Don McPherson and Chris Willenborg, MDOT-Aeronautics Division Executive Director, for state funding of engineering services with Stantec Consulting, which will ultimately lead to repaving Runway 3/21 this spring!

February’s Full Moon Fly Out Set for Tuesday 2/ 11 – Sunday 2/16. We will return to the ‘121 Restaurant’ at the Waterbury-Oxford Airport in CT. The food is great and it couldn’t be more convenient.
