NEW ENGLAND TUSKEGEE AIRMEN 2017 SCHOLARSHIP EVENT – SATURDAY 9/9

Thank you for your interest in attending and supporting the NE Tuskegee Airmen’s 2017 Scholarship Fundraising event!

The Tuskegee Airmen were the first African-American military aviators in the United States Armed Forces. They are celebrated today as an inspiration to this country and many young people. To commemorate the achievements of the Tuskegee Airmen, World War II heroes, we developed the New England Tuskegee Airmen Scholarship Program to inspire and motivate students to participate in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) educational opportunities. The initiative provides scholarships to high school seniors and supports ongoing programs that will promote and encourage STEM careers, especially in aeronautics and aviation. Please consider joining us for this scholarship program and in celebrating the iconic and heroic accomplishments of the Tuskegee Airmen. Our scholarships benefit youths from high schools in the Boston area.

This event will be hosted in partnership with the Collings Foundation at its living history museum of antique airplanes, unique classic cars, and rare historical artifacts. Tour the Foundation grounds! The Collings Foundation is a unique living history private museum. It is a non-profit educational foundation with a focus on the creation of historical events, and the preservation and exhibition of rare historical artifacts.

Please join us for a day featuring:

  • Demonstration flights of an authentic PT-17 Stearman
  • Your opportunity to take a flight in the PT-17 Stearman
  • An Introduction of the 2017 Tuskegee Airmen Scholarship Award winner
  • Tour the many aircraft exhibited
  • Picture yourself in Classic cars such as the 1932 Duesenberg SJ
  • Touch a section of the “Berlin Wall”
  • Enjoy Food, Music, Fun and much more!

    • You should send it directly to them. Their email address is on the post and I think if you click their facebook page, there’s more information. I’m sure they would appreciate it! And that way, you contribute directly to THEM and get whatever tax thingie you guys get for contributions. Actually, I just wrote to her to make sure that IS the right address. I think it is, but I wanted to double check. Give me an hour!

    • I’m sorry I haven’t gotten back to you. I’m waiting to get a usable address. Every time I work with groups raising money, I wonder how they don’t know they need a “donate” clicker or address and to make sure links are working. I think I’ll get the information tomorrow. I apologize!

      • Not a problem at this point! I’d like to send a check before my first surgery on Wednesday (cataract), while I’m sure I can still see to do it! After that, between 6 surgeries and all the concomitant appointments and two other medical issues and possible surgeries, I don’t know WHEN I’ll be able to do more than the basics!!!

        • If I don’t get the information, you can send me a check made out to them and I’ll hand it to the woman who runs it as soon as possible. She doesn’t live far from us. But I think she’ll get back to me. The problem is as it is with all small groups run by volunteers … everyone works at something else too. No one does this full time, so it can be hard to get in touch with people. It’s not like one of the big organizations. No team of people manning the phones. Garry is really happy about this, though. His dad was in WWII and his grandfather was in the Danish Navy in WWI and Garry was in the Marines. So this has meaning to him.

            • I emailed you the information. It seemed the simplest way to go. As i said, she lives nearby, so getting the check to her isn’t going to be all that difficult. This is a local group and they keep their aircraft at Hanscom Air Force Base. I think the group is actually physically located on the base too.
