Events at the International Women's Air And Space Museum

Received my IWASM newletter today:

In less than one month IWASM's newest special exhibit will open. 100 Ohio Women in Air & Space features biographies, photographs and over 50 artifacts celebrating the accomplishments of women in our home state. The exhibit is being created in honor of the 100th anniversary of American women in powered flight. 100 Ohio Women in Air & Space is being presented with support from the Ohio Humanities Council.

CarolAnn Garratt will be speaking at IWASM on Tuesday, June 29 at 7:00 pm. Garratt, with co-pilot Carol Foy, broke the record for flying around the world westbound in a single engine plane in December 2008. Garratt and Foy circled the globe in 8 1/2 days. The women undertook the trip to raise money and awareness for ALS. Garratt has written two books describing her adventures.

And if you aren't using GoodSearch ( as your search engine, consider doing so. You can choose any charity or organization you please (that participates in the program), and each time you do a search, a penny goes to that organization. It all adds up!
