CLUB AUCTION!!
FEBRUARY 16th at 7:00PM.

Please join us at the next Club Meeting!

Forest Park Community Center

7640 Jackson Blvd.

Forest Park, IL 60130

Club Auction Reminder:
Were just a week away from our club meeting and auction fundraiser.
Mark your calendar for February 16th at 7:00pm.
We are looking to our members to bring in and donate all related items to our hobby. We all have items such as kits, built planes, motors, radio equipment, building supplies, etc. that we no longer need and want to find a good home for. What a great way to give those items a purpose again.
The auction is a fun event where you can bid on some old and new unique items. What’s the old saying?, “One mans trash is another mans treasure”.
All proceeds raised will benefit our club.
By popular demand, John Eggum will return as our auctioneer.
Remember to bring cash!! No checks or money orders.
Hope to see you all there!
