Volunteer Spotlight – Terry Edwards

Our museum would not be where it is today without the hard work and dedication of its many volunteers.

Today we share a brief glimpse into the life and history of one of our volunteers, Terry Edwards.

On any given Tuesday, Terry can be seen giving tours to anyone who walks into the 1940 Air Terminal Museum. Visitors quickly recognize his vast knowledge about the Museum and especially his first love – flying.
Terry was born to fly – and he will share his experiences and life lessons with anyone who will listen. Recently, we talked to Terry about his more than 50 years as a private and commercial pilot.

Cessna 310 project

Filed under: Blog entry (Home Page) by Blair

Our museum receives many donations every day, and one of those is something we’ve had for a long time, but are now starting to restore it.  A Cessna 310 was donated to the museum several years ago, and we are in the process of putting it back together inside our parking lot fence.

If you haven’t been by in a while, come on by and check out the progress.  If you want to help with this or any other project, talk to one of our dedicated volunteers about volunteering at the museum.  The volunteers are the lifeblood of the museum and would not exist without the hard work and dedication of all of our volunteers.
