To bring you up to date on our efforts to raise $20K, per the 2015 APM Capital Campaign Fund, we have reached the half way point! That’s correct, in less than a month's time, our AAA members, our donors, fans, family & friends have contributed $10K!
Included in that was the “Memorial Day Challenge”, issued via one of our AAA Lifetime members, to match donations up to $300. That challenge was handily met in one day over the holiday weekend.
Ergo, now that 2015 APM Capital Campaign has accrued considerable funds, we can go ahead with the actual work and efforts needed to complete some of the infrastructure projects these funds are earmarked for.
First on the list is to start the work of re-rocking all the driveways and parking lots here at Antique Airfield. Weather permitting, that work will commence this week.
Second on the list is the re-roofing the N half of the APM’s main museum annex. The steel has been ordered and that project is scheduled to begin on June 3rd. AAA National Director Gary Van Farowe and a group from the MI chapter of the AAA will be on hand to tackle that project.
We also hope to complete the construction phase of the replacement/moving of the N wall in Powell Hall at that time and plan a work weekend June 6th to make progress on that project. If you can come and help with that, or other planned landscaping, fencing and field maintenance projects, please let us know. We love to have people come and help !!
As you can see, with the help of all of you, we’ve accomplished much in a short amount of time. All of us here at Antique Airfield most humbly “Thank You” for your support.
But if we could ask yet one more favor, we’d ask you please feel free to share the link http://www.gofundme.com/2015APMFund and news of the 2015 APM Capital Campaign Fund with your friends, & family via social media, email and word of mouth. Let’s see if we can reach our goal of $20K in the next month. With your help I believe we can!!
Remember your donation is fully tax deductible and every donation, no matter the size, counts !!
