Museum Patrons To Fly, Drive, Wine & Dine in Historic Fashion This Sunday
Museum patrons and donors are set to take a wonderful drive and dine, wing and wine trip Sunday. The adventurers will arrive at 9 am at the Museum to be regaled by tales and legends by guide leader and local historian Bill Layman. This epic one-day venture was one of the silent auction items up for grabs at our annual Winter Wine Gala last season.
Then the first leg of the journey begins in the form of a historic ride along the Columbia River in Wenatchee and East Wenatchee, courtesy of Dennis Schell in his 1932 Chevrolet with a rumble seat, Gene Clint in his 1920s Model T Ford, Carl Anderson in his 1915 Model T Ford, Arden Rakus in his Model A Roadster Pickup and Ken Komro, President of Antique Car Club of Wenatchee, in his 1957 Ford Skyliner convertible.
After the ride Lulu’s Kitchen in East Wenatchee will provide a sumptuous buffet lunch for the lucky adventurers in the Miss Veedol hanger at Pangborn Memorial Airport. Lunch will include sipping Fielding Hills Tribute 2011 wine donated by Fielding Hills.
Scott Carter, a pilot and volunteer on the Miss Veedol project will provide information about Miss Veedol and describe the planes they’ll be flying in after lunch.
At the present time Carter has lined pilots to fly planes as follows: Brian McNeal in his Rockwell Commander 4-seater, Ken Bovee in a Beach Bonanza 4-seater, and Scott in his Beach Musketeer 3-seater; Cessna 182 4-seater; Piper Cub 2-seater.
The flightpath will tour seven regional historic geological landmarks linked to Native American legends identified by Bill Layman.
