Flying Aces Club Exhibit

The Flying Aces Club will be displaying over 100 airplane models at the Georgetown Peabody Library as well as exhibits illustrating the building and flying of these models. These airplanes will be on display starting February 5th through March 31st.

Richard Zapf, a member of the Flying Aces Club, will be conducting tours on Tuesday, February 9th at 3PM and 6PM and Saturday, February 13th at 10AM for those interested in learning more about the exhibit and the history of aviation.

The Flying Aces Club is a group of like-minded individuals that enjoy building and flying rubber band powered stick and tissue model airplanes as well as preserving the history of aviation. The FAC is a national origination and our local chapter can be contacted online at Stealth Squadron FAC #49 or by calling 978-352-8331. They build and fly models from all eras and nations. Some of the most popular classes include racing planes of the 1930s as well as aircraft from World War One and Two. The FAC fly these models both indoors and outdoors, and have monthly meetings to discuss building models and exchange building and flying tips. Beginners need not be intimidated as most members are more than willing to offer support.

Evening Book Group

Join us on Monday, February 8 at 7PM in the Meeting Room as we discuss Better than Before by Gretchen Rubin. Copes of the book are still available. New members are always welcome!

Habits are the invisible architecture of our lives. Grecthen Rubin provides an analytical and scientific framework from which to understand these habits–as well as change them for good. Infused with her compelling voice and funny stories, she illustrates the core principles of habit formation with dozens of strategies that she uses herself and tests out on others. Rubin provides tools to help readers better understand themselves, and presents a clear, practical menu of strategies so readers can take an individualized approach. With a foundation of good habits, we can build a life that reflects our values and goals.
