Congratulations to Sydney !   Champion  for Stantion

"I wanted to thank you for letting me use the stanchions for the fair. They made a great exhibit and won a champion ribbon. I've attached a picture of the display, and I'll be sure to let you know how they do at the state fair."
Thank you again,
  Sydney Endow



Syndey is a Hood River High School student helping WAAAM. She volunteered to make 30 of these stanchions during her welding class this year at school and took home the big award during the Hood River County Fair last week where she set up a display. There are now a hundred of these 106 canisters with a disk blade base and a hook on display at WAAAM. Find them in the military section of the museum.



Congrats Sydney and thanks for all your help!

   Another Volunteer feat!
Don Durr made it happen.
The old Trail  Theater marquee has been movet to the shop area for revamping and all because Don got a group of folks together and just did it.
Our plan is to make this part of Hood River history  into our new permanant WAAAM Air and Auto Museum road way sign.

"Truly an amazing exhibit!
