Thank you to Helen for again hosting a wonderful Christmas party. We are grateful for the opportunity to enjoy the time with friends, especially those we don’t get to see very often. This year’s party coincided with Laura’s break from medical school, and we were very glad to catch up with her. We also had a guest from the Eastern PA chapter, Juliet Lindrooth, who is the Mid-Atlantic Section governor. Juliet flies for American Airlines, and spends her summers flying vintage aircraft at Eagles Mere Air Museum in Laporte. Her Grumman Tiger is based at KIPT. As section governor, she’s working to revive interest and participation in section activities, and encourage chapters within the section to get to know each other better. We are happy to have met her and thank her for reaching out to us.

Nancy McCurry hosted our summer picnic/pool party at her home in Quakertown. It had been a while since we got to see Debbie Maseychik, who brought her dog Hootie, and caught us up on her latest adventures flying her Mooney out of Wyoming Valley. Anneliese Vetter, Nancy and Debbie shared their experiences flying gliders at Beltzville. We all enjoyed good food, wine and camaraderie.

The Loch Haven Airport Fly In was a great success. Seven 99s met at 11 AM on Sunday, June 19th, 2016. Sally Moritz flew in with Terri Morse, Susannah Cook, and Diana Kelly. Sally belongs to a club which maintains the beautiful Piper Archer II in which they flew. Nancy McCurry and Leah Shaheen drove in together and Maribeth Dunlap met them at the airport in her vehicle. Maribeth arranged brunch at the Dutch Haven Restaurant where we enjoyed a beautiful brunch with prime rib, ham, turkey, and all the extras fit for a holiday meal. After brunch we toured the wonderful Piper Aviation Museum.

Helen McKeever hosted another wonderful holiday party for our chapter on December 13. We got to meet one of our newest members, Leah Shaheen, who came all the way from Muncy, PA. Leah is a student pilot training at Williamsport. She joined a flying club based there and flies the club’s Cessna 172. When she’s not flying, Leah is busy working multiple jobs for an energy company and hotel chain. Marcia Johnson introduced her to the 99s. Since Keystone is Leah’s closest chapter, Nancy reached out to her to connect. We welcome Leah to our chapter and hope that we can help her reach her aviation goals.
