In Review

As 2016 came to a close, Museum of Aviation Foundation staff looked back on all that had been accomplished, and knew that we wanted to keep the momentum going in 2017. This meant that our first three events, which were just about back to back, were something to remember. Beginning with our Marathon, Half Marathon, and 5K, we set our standards high, and really looked at what runners wanted. With a sponsorship from Clif Bar, pizza from My Father’s Place and Little Caesars, and donations from Coca Cola, Kroger, Walmart, and Publix32327012366_bb4f1c49c4_b-2, our runners were well fueled before and after their race. Moisture wicking shirts from Ibalz were wellreceived, and thanks to Jim Rainey, Race Director from Georgia Multisports, Volunteer Coordinator, MSgt. Amanda McCullough, and Security Police Officer, SSgt. Samuel Harrison our racers had a safe run around Robins AFB.  Thank you also to David Collins Photography for sunning pictures of the event.

The second event of the year was our annual Winter Wonderfest. Each year thousands get a thrill from the chilly snow tubes, enjoy bounce houses, and dine on the best of food truck fare.

This year we upped our offerings, and brought in a zip line and snow play. Kids of all ages soared through the sky, made snow angels, and bounced to their hearts delight while visitors took a walk through our Eagle building to see what our vendors had for sale this year. Soaps, jewelry, woodcarvings, baked goods, and more gave our guests a wide range of things to purchase. Smiling faces were the best part of the weekend, and we look forward to making doing it again next year.

Our third event was our first ever Breakaway Gala. A 1920’s themed B-17 benefit, the Breakaway Gala mixed old and new into an authentic 20’s event. Guests dined on

appetizers from Maddox Catering, snapped pictures in front of the B-17 and a vintage automobile, and danced the Charleston to some of their favorite tunes, mixed by DJ X-One. During the evening, we honored our friend and B-17 pilot, Crawford Hicks, who celebrated his 96th birthday that weekend. We are thankful to those who came out to show love to the B-17, and enjoy an evening at the Museum.

March at the Museum is bringing more changes to events and our campus. New audio visual capabilities are being installed, and our annual Scott Golf tournament will be held at Idle Hour Country Club in Macon. In addition to these events, our Education Department will hold their Coding & Programming course, Educator Workshop, and Spring Into STEM program. For more information on what is coming up, keep an eye on our website, and  Facebook .
