Introducing Joan Benedict
Joan is a simply a gem to WAAAM.
Always a smile and willing to help where ever she is needed.Currently, she is manning the front desk and helping on the sign and labeling project for the displays.. Now, that
is 60 plus aircraft, more than 90 automobiles, 6 motorcycles and 6 military vehicles. That is a huge effort! Thank you to Joan and to all that are helping..
Joan has on loan at the museum, her fathers Joan & TommyGun
memorabilia of his service in WWll. He started his
carrier as a Tail gunner in a B-17. Please spend a bit
of time and learn about this father, husband,
friend and soldier who gave so much to help secure our way of life (located in a glass case in M2)
What is my favorite at WAAAM you ask? Why all of the planes in one place of course". So I guess that answers my next question " Planes or Cars?"
Married to Mike for 38 years, she is a resident for the Hood River Valley (Odell) and they have a daughter. You might also see Joan Sailing, Knitting and Spinning and is active in the Odell garden club.This is one busy lady.
Thank you Joan, YOU help make WAAAM wonderful!
