"Flying might not be all plain sailing, but the fun of it is worth the price"
Where has the time gone? It seems like yesterday we welcomed 2022 in, and now we get ready to say farewell. This year has been a great year for KAM, but we have also seen some tougher times. We lost two great volunteers this year, Dave Robbins, and this past month, Ron Blum. Our volunteers are the heartbeat of this museum, and it's always sad to say goodbye.
Here are some successes this year. Our attendance increased by 35% from pre-Covid 2019 numbers! Our partnerships within the community have increased as more folks are getting involved in our committees. We opened up our Women of Aviation exhibit in August, and have begun construction on the first major renovation in over a decade. Our Matty Project Capital Campaign continues to see support, and by the beginning part of 2023, we will be able to open these new exhibits! This is because of your support.
As we look ahead to 2023, I look forward to seeing you here at the museum, whether it's for touring, a corporate event, or one of our exciting events. There are great days ahead for KAM. Please, take a second to consider supporting us financially. As a 501c3 non-profit, we rely on the generosity of folks like you!
