Valley Mills 4th of July parade
Since we have been involved with the city of Valley Mills, we participated in the 4th of July parade and will have a float in the upcoming Christmas parade. Since these will be annual events, Bob came up with the idea to build a plane large enough for a child to ride in. It will have TMAF graphics and will be pulled behind a golf cart by the mayor. TMAF will also have a trailer full of planes pulled by Max. During the parade we will have people on the float throwing candy along the parade route. Bob did a great job building the plane and we had several members who helped get it painted. Robert Vandine will make the graphics.. The Valley Mills Chirstmas parade will be the debut for the plane on December the 13th at 4:30 pm. Thanks again Bob and everyone who helped!!
Valley Mills Christmas Parade
The Valley Mills Christmas parade was held on December the 13th. We would like to thank all members that could make it. The parade plane was a great success. Special thanks to Dennis Durham for all the pic's.

Thanks to all that participated in the parade. Pulling the small plane was Butch and Margie Zelmer. on the trailer was Ryan Fabianke ,Ron Edwards,Harry (Bones) Manning, Wesley Bailey,David Smith, Sally Blose, and Pulling the trailer was Bruce Crunk and wife Donna. Walking behind the trailer and flying a small foamie was Steve Fabianke and Todd Blose. It was certainly a large parade with lots of spectators, and lots of candy throwing!!!! We had a great Surprise, David Smith accepted the third place honor for our trailer and plane in the parade. That gave TMAF $ 15.00 to add to the treasure. Some of the members went to the field with a hot afternoon to fly and help with the spectators. We did have a couple of young men who tried their hand at model aviation. Again thanks to all the help for a wonderful job well done. There will be some pictures placed on the web site, also Butch Zelmer has a video he took at the June 7th night fly that we will try to send out if possible, place on the web site, or make copies for members wanting it. Thanks to Butch for his video from his Quad copter.
