Lindbergh Foundation featured at Atlanta Aero Club

Officials from the Charles A. and Ann Morrow Lindbergh Foundation will conduct a featured program at the regular bi-monthly meeting of the Atlanta Aero Club March 15.

John Petersen and Larry Williams will make the presentation.

In addition, Delta Air Lines, headquartered in Atlanta, will be formally presented with the Atlanta Aero Club’s Epps Aviation Award for outstanding aviation achievement for accomplishments that benefit the Georgia aviation community. Delta’s Senior Vice President Mike Campbell will be in attendance to accept the award. Also, Harold Beavis, VP of Public Relations for Delta, has joined the Atlanta Aero Club’s board of directors for 2012.

The Charles A. and Anne Morrow Lindbergh Foundation was created in 1977, the 50th anniversary year of Charles Lindbergh’s epic New York-to-Paris flight. It was originated by friends of the Lindbergh’s at The Explorers Club in New York City and other friends and admirers. This year marks the 85th anniversary of this historic event.

The resulting national effort that established the organization was led by General James H. Doolittle and Astronaut Neil Armstrong. Also instrumental in its creation was James D. Newton, a longtime close friend of Charles and Anne Lindbergh, who was honorary chairman until his death in 1999.

The meeting is scheduled for noon on March 15 in the Grand Ballroom of the Capital City Club, 7 Harris St., downtown Atlanta. The cost is $40 for members and $45 for non-members and includes lunch. A networking hour begins at 11 am with check in at 11:30 am. Reservations can be made online at AtlantaAeroClub.org, by calling 800-878-7555 or email cc@atlantaaerclub.org
