The New Carlisle Heritage of Flight Festival was a great success. The weather was good both days. The car show on Friday had 940 cars participating. Saturday was also outstanding with a wonderful parade featuring aircraft and many local parade units. Our food booth sales were very good. Thanks to all the members, wives, sons and daughters that helped.
