There is a new added link to the website that you may want to read on EAA Sun and Fun of 1978. Also in Newsletters of Today and the Past website link. I added about 10 years of past NewsLetters (Smoke Signals). Also will be adding more through the month once we are done scanning each issue. I have issues dated back to 1967.

SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo
Event Update as of March 17th
SUN ‘n FUN and the Aerospace Center for Excellence are deeply concerned about the developing crisis with COVID-19 and understand our responsibility to help in the fight against the spread of the disease. Our first priority is always the health, safety, and well-being of our patrons, partners, staff and volunteers.
With the full support of Polk County, the City of Lakeland, Lakeland Linder International Airport, and the FAA, at this time we have tentatively postponed the 2020 SUN ‘n FUN Aerospace Expo until May 5th-10th, and will make a final determination on our ability to do so no later than April 17th.
The Sign is up and Showing our colors and our establishment at our CEC building (Chapter Educational Center).

Members and Guests,
Due to a conflict arising out of a need to get Sun-n-Fun volunteers their wrist bands further in advance, it was decided by a vote of the members at the February meeting that the March meeting will be moved up a week. The March meeting will now occur on week #3 instead of 4.
*** Please plan to attend the March meeting on Saturday March 21st. ***
Also, I wanted to clear up some confusion regarding our Facebook Group and Page. Chapter 175 has both a FB Group and a FB Page.
The FB Group is private and for paid members only. This is where you find information that is not available to the general public such as financials and other documents, it is also a place for private conversation with other members.
The FB Page is for public consumption. This is where we advertise events and other information to the public and anyone can receive information here by just "Liking" the page. To find it on FB just do a search for EAA Chapter 175.
If you are a member and not on the FB Group, send me an email and I will add you to the group.
