Our monthly Member Meetings typically include updates on important Museum news, a raffle, video presentations, a chance to visit with other Museum members, snacks, and a presentation by a featured speaker. Speakers may include military Veterans, historians, civic leaders, and other people with interesting stories to tell of their historical research or their aviation or military experiences.

Air Show Meeting at 6:00 immediately before the Member Meeting
The 2018 Wings Over Wine Country Air Show is being planned!
Each month we have an open Air Show meeting, just before the monthly Member Meeting. We talk about performers, volunteers, staffing, vendors, attractions, and all the other important things that go into an event like this.
These meetings are your chance to find out what’s happening, get a look at the plans, and contribute your own opinions and ideas. We encourage you to attend.
The Air Show meetings take place at 6:00 p.m. and run through about 6:45 p.m., and are in the same room as the Member Meetings.
