Letter from the President
Dear Museum Supporter,
On behalf of the Houston Aeronautical Heritage Society, I want to thank you for your continued support of the 1940 Air Terminal Museum. Enclosed is a sponsorship package for our upcoming 2015 "Flight 75 to Casablanca" Fundraising Gala. We appreciate your consideration of sponsoring and/or your attendance at our event.
This year's event is extra special because the terminal building will be celebrating its 75th Anniversary. The Houston Municipal Airport opened on September 28, 1940. Designed by architect Joseph Finger, the terminal served as the administration building for the airport and supported airline operations and air traffic control functions. The first tenants to occupy the terminal building were Braniff Airways and Eastern Air Lines.
Your participation in this year's Gala will help us continue to make much needed improvements to the museum such as repairs to our parking lot, the repainting of the exterior of the terminal, the construction of an interactive children's gallery, and continue with the restoration of our historic building.
The 75th Anniversary is a joyous occasion and we will be celebrating all year long. We look forward to you joining us at the various events we will have planned. It is because of businesses and people like you that the museum is able to exist and continue to tell the story of Houston's aviation history. We are forever grateful and appreciative of your support and your dedication to aviation, history, and education.
I am always available to meet with you, or to answer any questions you may have. Please do not hesitate to call me at (713) 454-1940, or to contact me by email.
