National Day of Remembrance

Will Rogers was America's spokesman for the new fledging mode of transportation, flying.  Wiley Post was a piloting pioneer flying around the world twice and setting speed records.  Both men died tragically in a small plane crash in 1935.  Our National Day of Remembrance honors all those who have lost their lives in a small airplane crash. 

Please join us on our Facebook page CLICK HERE.  We will go LIVE at 9:55 a.m. and the ceremony will begin at 10:00 a.m.

We now have a commemorative Lapel Pin that has a painting of Will in a flight jacket with one of his quotes, "She's a beautiful day and we are flying high."

The Lapel Pin is also for sale for $5 for anyone that would like to give it as a gift or own for yourself in honor of a friend or loved one.
