The New Carlisle Heritage of Flight Festival was a great success. Weather was good for both days. The car show on Friday had 800 cars participating. Saturday was outstanding with a wonderful parade featuring aircraft, the Dayton Antioch Shrine and with many local parade units participating. Our food booth had the best year ever.
Thanks to all that helped from the those that have worked year after year, and to the new folks that helped for the first time. Finally, thanks to all the ladies that helped, we couldn’t do this without you.
