OUR 2012 EAST CANADA SECTION MEETING
Here's our latest Governor's newsletter "The Navigator" (July 2012).
(June 2012) We've just gathered in Ottawa at the Sheraton for our 2012 East Canada Section meeting. International President-elect Martha Phillips and her husband Art attended and shared news from the international perspective. Kathy Fox gave an informative safety seminar Friday afternoon. Saturday evening Heather and Rod Fleck from the Vintage Wings shared stories and pictures about our Canadian aviation history, centering around Canadian aircraft and pilots. Margo McCutcheon received the 2012 Governor's Service Award. A new stamp commemorating Isabel Peppler was released, and the Peppler family was in attendance to celebrate this special occasion. Shirley Allen will be inducted into the International Forest of Friendship in June 2012. Some souvenir photos (courtesy of Akky, Jacquie and Dorothy) follow:
