Chapter 252

Oshkosh, WI - The Steve Wittman Chapter

Spirit of Elo Award

A special once in a lifetime “Spirit of Elo” award was created by the Chapter Directors. Munsil Williams. Munsil is our weekly genial host at his open house airstrip and hangar in Elo, Wisconsin (a suburb of Pickett).

For many years, Munsil and his late wife Shirley provided a very simple concept of having aviation people gather at what we fondly call “Elo International Airstrip” on Saturday mornings. No chairmen, no committees. Just gather. The coffee is on, the sweet rolls appear with the attendees.  Spouses, kids, grandma, and friends simply arrive – some by plane, most by car. By 11:30 or so, most are gone. All carry some of the warmth of “the Spirit of Elo” away with them.

An annual Christmas party, often a fall corn roast, and other activities take place at Elo. Munsil is always there when he is needed. Munsil carries on the tradition today.
