Flying Aces Club Exhibit

The Flying Aces Club will be displaying airplane models at the 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.

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, June 13 at 7PM in the Meeting Room as we discuss The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown. Copies of the book are still available.

 

It was an unlikely quest from the start. With a team composed of the sons of loggers, shipyard workers, and farmers, the University of Washington’s eight-oar crew team was never expected to defeat the elite teams of the East Coast and Great Britain, yet they did, going on to shock the world by defeating the German team rowing for Adolf Hitler.

The emotional heart of the tale lies with Joe Rantz, a teenager without family or prospects, who rows not only to regain his shattered self-regard but also to find a real place for himself in the world. Drawing on the boys’ own journals and vivid memories of a once-in-a-lifetime shared dream, Brown has created an unforgettable portrait of an era, a celebration of a remarkable achievement, and a chronicle of one extraordinary young man’s personal quest.
