About Phil McSpadden
Phil McSpadden is a self-described Depression Kid born into a coal mining family that came to America in 1720. His dad was an active organizer for miners and found himself often black balled by mining companies throughout the country including Alabama. He recalls at age 7, he and his brothers were informed that his dad was on strike and they moved to southern Illinois. Phil lost a brother fighting in Luxemburg. He lives here in Santa Rosa, California.
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.
