Air News May 2015 Page 2 THE FLIGHT LINE Donna Klein, chairman FINALLY!!! Spring has sprung! The weather is beginning to match the season at last. Beautiful flowers, budding trees and flying weather are what we wait all winter for. Let's enjoy it and make the most of each day. Congratulations to Mary Linstromberg on being awarded her Private Pilot's License. W ay to go, Mary! We're proud of you. And to other CAC 99s who are working on licenses or ratings, please let us know how you are progressing. Our Girl Scout Prep Day last month went smoothly - like a fine-tuned engine; we almost have it down to a science. Unfortunately, we won't need the packets we prepared right now, since we had to postpone the event due to low enrollment. Thank you, Deb Meznarsic, for providing us with a scrumptious lunch. W e also celebrated Diane Cozzi's birthday and collected supplies for the victims of the Kirkland tornado. I wasn't able to attend the NCS Spring Section Meeting last month. (Details are featured elsewhere in this newsletter.) It is the first one I have missed in a while, and I heard it was great. It is always fun getting together with 99s from other Chapters - reconnecting with old friends, meeting new ones and getting fresh ideas for how to improve our own Chapter. I encourage all of you to go to one of these meetings if you have a chance. The next one, in September, will be in Minnesota. One of our Members, Beverlee Greenhill, who passed away last summer, is being inducted into the Illinois Aviation Hall of Fame. She and several others will be honored at a dinner in Rockford on May 14th. She contributed so much to aviation and to our Chapter, and it is fitting that she is being honored in this way. I'd like to remind you to try to keep in touch with those Members who we don't see very often, and to reach out to our new Members by welcoming them and inviting them to a meeting or an event. I hope to see you at our next meeting. Have a great day!
