Each Chapter has its own personality that is
reflected in its members and local culture. The common thread you will find
at EAA Chapter 839 is an interest in enjoying aviation with others who have
a similar interest and the desire to share aviation with the local community
through fly-ins, picnics, workshops, Young Eagle rallies and more. We are an Active Chapter with a new hangar and
lots of exciting projects in the works. Contact us
soon for more information!

Hangar Receives New (Used) Refrigerator
At our April meeting we discussed replacing our aging refrigerator and a
vote was taken and passed to buy a new one for up to $600. However, Dave
Morris spoke up and said he had a used one we could have if no one else in
his family wanted it.
Well, Dave checked with family members and let Rod Hatcher know it was
On Saturday, April 27, an expedition was mounted to pick up the
refrigerator! Bill Barry, Tony Bartolo and Rod Hacher loaded into Rod's old
Toyota 4-Runner and pulled a trailer over to Dave's house wher the appliance
was retrieved from the basement and transported back to the hangar.
The following day, Sunday, Rod Hatcher and Fred Duckloe transferred the
food, beer and soda from the old refrigerator into the new/used one and we
are ready to go!
Thank you Dave! We appreciate your generosity!
