Society for Aviation History

   President's Message for July/August 2018

This issue of Touch and Go is our expanded Summer Issue and I hope you all enjoy it and also are enjoying your summer. I want to take a moment to thank everyone, including members, board members and volunteers, for your help and support as I learn the ropes of being your new president.

So far this year the Society for Aviation History has had three very well-attended general meetings that have been both educational and entertaining. I hope everyone who has attended our meetings so far this year has enjoyed them; I know I sure have. At our last meeting, held on June 2, 2018, at the Moffett Field Historical Society Museum, member Ron Paliughi talked to us about "Finding, Restoring, and Flying Vintage Warbirds." More than 50 members and guests attended and enjoyed both Paliughi's presentation and a delicious buffet barbeque lunch. A recap of the meeting appears later in this newsletter. Also, for those of you who couldn't be at the meeting, or who want to see previous meetings, remember our DVD Lending Library. It is overseen by Byron May, who can be contacted through the SAH website here - Byron@sfahistory.org (please copy his email address).

As I have previously mentioned, the content of the Touch and Go newsletter comes from our members and is by us and for us. So, if you have visited a museum, gone to an airshow or even would like to share some of your experiences in aviation, please contact Touch & Go editor Betty Veronico at Betty@sfahistory.org (please copy her email address). Also, as I have also mentioned before, guidelines for submitting material can be found on the SAH website at - http://www.sfahistory.org/guidelines.htm.

The society is now on our annual "summer break" and our next meeting will be on Oct. 13. We will also be conducting our annual Canned Food Drive at this meeting (see Touch and Go Vol. 13 No. 5). At our December 1 Annual Meeting, we will be conducting our annual "Teen Toy Drive" (see Touch and Go Vol. 13 No. 6).

Thank you and have a great summer!

Rick Turner
