President’s Message

This is my last President’s message to you as I term out of office. The last six years spent on the
board of directors has been truly an honor. I’ve met many new people and sadly had to see some
pass on. This isn’t the last of me! I’ll still be doing a lot around PCAM. It has been an exciting year
on every account, and I gotta see it through.
This past year has been a record-setting year by far. Hot Dog Thursday set attendance numbers
that we thought would never happen. Another amazing Wheels & Wings car show earned over
$24,000, with 175 cars and some 1500 people. Construction plans are being made and preparations
are in progress with the Butler Hangar. The new gift shop inches closer to getting our building
permit, which is currently sitting at the last four of the 14 processes with the FAA approval office.
Our private events have been picking up. As the word is out about Hangar 2, we have received
more requests. As of December 7 we received our A-6 Intruder Tribute Monument. The year 2024
is going to be huge for PCAM. Not only is it our 35th anniversary, we will see huge changes to the
Butler Hangar and old Dragon Fly Building. I look forward to next year’s achievements and seeing
what new records can be set. May you all have a safe and Happy Holiday!
