Arnold Air Society & Silver Wings 2018 Alaska Earthquake Relief Fundraiser
An earthquake of magnitude 7.0 struck Alaska just 7 miles north of Anchorage. Though there are no reported casualties yet, there have been several less cases of injury. The issue now lies in structural and road damage, and repairs must be done in cold conditions with limited daylight hours. National Staff has designed this t-shirt to help raise funds for those affected. (Also, it’s a really nice shirt.) Follow the link to add this to your wardrobe.

We have had many alumni in the past interested in reunions. We even had local chapters in the past. One of our goals is to start having Alumni reunions at conclaves. Any alumni are welcomed, but we have many alumni we have lost contact with. Since we have so many, we first are focusing on people that are from the schools that are hosting the conclaves. Also, looking to find alumni that are local to the conclave.
Fourth Annual Alumni Update
The Dotsie Stewart Silver Wings Chapter and the Tsgt. Robert E Lamotte Squadron, both from Michigan Technological University, have partnered with the Keweenaw Community Foundation to help raise funds for those impacted by this natural disaster.
While Houghton may be known for it’s snowfall, it isn’t known for rainfall which meant that the 7″ of rain that fell over the course of a few hours this past weekend were disastrous. As of right now, there have been 60+ sink holes, numerous washed out roads, and Governor Snyder has declared a state of disaster. Unfortunately, seeing as rain isn’t usually a huge concern many families and businesses don’t have flood insurance.
It is our mission to raise as much as we can to give back to our community. We are eager to give assistance to those affected by this because our joint national project this year is disaster relief. This really hits home for us, so we greatly appreciate your donation to this cause.
Alumni! We are conducting a survey to determine the demographic of the JAA with respect to civilians, military or retirees. Please access the link below when you have a chance to help the JAA out: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/DHHT3TW
