On Saturday, October 2nd, the Skinner Road Airport Community Association (SRACA) held its second annual open house for the people in our community. This event gave our neighbors the opportunity to learn about the airport and meet the people who fly and live here. 

Once again, through the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA),  youngsters 8-17 were given the chance to experience a ride in a general aviation aircraft by participating in the Young Eagles Program.

The weather, gloomy and raining at first, cleared and gradually turned into a nice day.  Hot Dogs, drinks and snacks were provided by the SRACA, and over 30 kids participated in the Young Eagles program.

Everyone who came seemed to have a wonderful time and the event received many compliments.
