Dear Museum Supporter:
The 11th Annual Cradle of Aviation Museum Air and Space Gala will be held on Wednesday, November 20, 2013.
The Gala helps to support the development of new activities and educational programs, and honors the accomplishments of leaders in aerospace and technology. This year we are celebrating Apollo 9 and the Lunar Module. We are honored to present this year’s Spirit of Discovery Award to Astronaut James A. McDivitt, Commander, Apollo 9, and Astronaut Russell “Rusty” Schweickart, LM Pilot, Apollo 9. Accepting the Leroy R. Grumman Award for Technical Achievement is Charles J. Seelinger, former CEO for Burton Industries. The Donald E. Axinn Award for Community Service will be presented to The Berlin Family Foundation.
