Salinas International Air Show

The Salinas Elks Lodge #614 had not had a food booth at the Air Show in over 6 years. I don't know how many exactly. But, this year we had great fun cooking and selling steak sandwiches, hamburgers, and Swiss sausages. We didn't make a lot of money but our efforts supported local charities, got our name in front of potential new members, and provided some money for the Elks National Foundation.

Several volunteers worked hard on September 23rd, 24th, and 25th cooking and selling. Dennis Barrett did a great job as chairman. Counting the days of preparation and clean up he worked harder than any of us.

The attached collection of photographs in the next story depicts some of the air show fun. The Tora, Tora, Tora, show was outstanding. I hope they bring it back again next year. We suggest you add attending the air show to your "bucket list" of things to do!
