DELTA GOLDEN WINGS (DGW)
The fifth annual DGW Fly-in/Drive-in will be held May 16 at the Alexander Memorial Airport in Williamson, GA. Some of you have attended previous events and an open invitation is again extended to all Clipped Wings, Pioneers, and other Delta retirees and employees who wish to join the fun. The intent is to bring Delta people together, to reacquaint, and reminisce of times gone by and support the Candler Field Youth Program.
A $5.00 donation is requested to “Help Youth Achieve Their Dreams.” The Youth Program will have a burger lunch line at 12 Noon as a fund raiser. All proceeds from the event will support the Candler Field Youth Mentorship Program where young people learn to restore, maintain and fly airplanes.
Fly or drive your airplane or special car and we will place it on display for all to admire. But you don’t need an airplane or special car to participate…just come and join the fun! Guests are welcome! Mingle with old friends, visit the museum, or admire the cars and planes. Plan to stay for the day. We hope to see you!
