On Thursday, January 31st, between the hours of 12:00 and 13:30, the local general aviation community, in partnership with EAA Chapter 21, Skylane Pilots Association and the EVV Pilots Club is sponsoring a take-away meal for the controllers, technicians and staffers at both KEVV and KOWB towers.

Our plan is to serve 75 meals here and 25 meals in Owensboro on that day. The menu is BBQ with sides, desert and a bottle of water. Depending upon time and availability, we will try and invite the TSA staffers on shift during that time as well.

As of this morning we have raised $1,050 dollars towards our goal of $1,400 - $1,600 (this number changes due to changes in staffing headcount). Off shift and furloughed staffers will be invited to come down and take away a meal by their supervisors.

Please consider making a donation to this worthy community supported cause. For more details or to make a donation, you may contact me directly at rhinoceros@twc.com. Even if you choose not to donate, watch for updates and come on down to the towers and show your support to these men, women and families.

Because of the extraordinary response for donations, we will no longer be accepting funds for this event after 0800 Friday, January 25th, 2019.

We have met and exceeded our original goal - so thank you!

If you have made a previous commitment for funds, I will be in contact with information as to where to direct your donations.

On behalf of the Distler Family, EAA 21, Skylane Pilots Association, EVV Pilots Club, Tri-State Aero and a host of individual contributors, thank you again.

Bill

Dear all,

Given the ending of the government shutdown and in coordination with the FAA tower managers, we are standing down and not going to proceed with our planned event on Thursday, January 31st, 2019. Understandably, they wish to move on with their lives and we can only respect their wishes.

Thank you all again for offering to help with this event. Please know that NO FUNDS HAVE BEEN COLLECTED. If any donations have been sent, they will promptly be returned with our thanks.

For me personally, I am honored to be a part of a community whose support for this planned event was overwhelmingly positive. Additionally, I am indebted to our organizational sponsors: EAA Chapter 21, Inc., EVV Pilots Club, Skylane Pilots Association, and Tri State Aero, Inc. for their support and encouragement.

Kind regards,

Bill Janowicz
