Pilots Needed!

Operation P.R.O.P. is THIS Saturday, May 12th and we need some pilot volunteers with their airplanes to be at the Raymond Airport!  Please contact Linwood Nooe at the phone number or e-mail in the press release below to let him know you are coming.  We really need some larger 4+ place aircraft to help us out at the event.  Please try to be at the airport at 09:00 so that we can have a safety briefing and go over the flight details.  I think you will find, as Beth & I did last year, that this will be a very rewarding experience for the participants as well as the volunteers.
