We had another work day at the ARC. Today there were five of us working ... hard . The three Doherty boys, Pat Rebert and Bob Murray. A couple guys who’s plane is next to Don’s stopped by and offered to help for a while. I gave one a shovel and asked him to help clear the east sidewalk of cornstalks and corncobs. The other fellow was given a broom and set to work helping Don. They left after a while and gave us some much needed assistance. The crew set to work moving stuff to the west side of the hangar section and raising the hinged interior wall on the east side. The east side floor is now ready to clean.
The conference room is finished and disinfected for the most part. Both bathrooms are ready for their final cleaning and disinfecting process.
On the outside, cornstalks were shoveled away from the big hangar door and the sidewalks were power washed.
Considering there were only five of us out of the eighty or so chapter members, I think we got a lot done. Well done, fellows!

Some of us are going to be working on it Monday from about noon till sundown. Again, we could use more help.
If anyone gets a chance, come out for a while and lend a hand, even if it’s for a while after work. I know a vast majority of members have to work for a living and don’t expect much turnout during regular working hours. Perhaps after??

At 11:30 PM Monday (5/6/19) water level was 32.04 feet.... So we currently have around 6 to 9 inches of water inside our building. Thanks to all the people who helped in the mad scramble to raise things and load what we could to get it out of there. We’ve rented a 10’ X 30’ storage locker, and it’s pretty much full. Cabinets in the kitchen were pulled and taken by truck (rented) to the storage site. Many other items were moved to storage, raised onto concrete blocks and/or put on tables. Let’s hope the river has crested, or is near crest. Once waters go down, we’ll have a monumental task of cleaning things up. It’s not just a matter of hosing down the floor. Walls will have to be opened up, cleaned and disinfected. Not a pleasant thought. Hang in there, folks. We all knew it was bound to happen someday.

Chapter 32 Events

  • We are hoping to set up a fabric covering seminar or classes later this year. Due to material cost and preparation items we may have to charge a small fee to cover items such as frames to cover and materials. I would like to keep this no more than $20-$30 for members. It should include basic covering as well as rib stitching. Fellow chapter members will teach this. How many people would be interested? Please contact a chapter officer.
  • We have a number of members who are proficient at MIG and to some degree TIG welding. Please contact Don Doherty on helping with other members learning to weld.
  • Volunteers are needed to help grass cutting once a month. During active growing season the grass needs to be cut once a week. During the dry season this sometimes drops to every two to three weeks. Volunteers need to be checked out on the mower. Cutting time takes about 1.5-2 hrs. Right now we have 2 or three people and need a couple more that are reliable. I would like to spend some of my weekends flying instead of cutting the ARC grass. Please contact Don Doherty.
