Foundation Happenings:

We are sad to report that our illustrious secretary, Dave McIntosh is having medical issues, so we are filling some big shoes while he is recovering.Our prayers and concerns are with both Dave and his wife, Mary. We wish him a very speedy recovery. He is greatly missed! This month’s newsletter will look a little different. It is taking three of us to make up for one Dave!

The board of directors at the South Carolina Historic Aviation Foundation met on March 17, 2018. Board members present were Ken Berry, Ron Skipper and Katherine Cuddy. SCHAF members present were Niall McLaughlin, Chris Gillam, David Moxley and John Chamberlain.

At our March open house, we had several special guests. Ellen and Carl Nagy along with Tim Sinclair, relatives and friends of the Dan Rossman family, stopped by to see the work on GF2. They were visiting from Pennsylvania and shared some great stories about Dan Rossman. Also at the open house was Rev Matt Yon, son of Larry Yon. Larry was one of our founding board members who recently passed away. Matt delivered some fantastic reference material about the raising of GF2 from Lake Greenwood and the original restoration. There is some wonderful information about the beginnings of the restoration of GF2.
