FLYGIRLS OF WWII AT WIMSA IN WASHINGTON, D.C.
SAVE THE DATE—NOVEMBER 14, 2008
ONE: Just returned from a meeting at the inspirational WIMSA Memorial in Washington, DC, where we learned that the FLYGIRLS of WWII Exhibit is invited to be on display for the next YEAR! YES, this is wonderful news—and we are excited that thousands of people will have the opportunity to learn about the WASP!
TWO: SCHEDULE CHANGE for the OFFICIAL OPENING of the FLYGIRLS OF WWII EXHIBIT and the 11th Anniversary of WIMSA -- NOVEMBER 14, 2008 AT 11 AM.
This date is of some significance to the WASP. On this day, 66 years ago, the first class arrived in Houston and gathered together at a hotel in downtown Houston. The next day, they 'reported in' at the Houston Municipal Airport, raised their right hands, took the 'Oath', and officially became WFTD trainees.
WIMSA will be sending official invitations out to all the WASP, but I wanted to share this date with those of you online ASAP.
I hope some of you will be able to come—and, if not on the 14th, then at some time during the NEXT YEAR!!!
God bless you all,
