Matching Grant received from SCF

Stark Community Foundation has awarded MAPS Air Museum a $15,000 educational grant for our High School US History program. $5,000 of the grant is contingent on raising matching contributions from individuals prior to November 2016.

This program has grown significantly over the past five years to include thirteen Stark County Schools and 1,664 students. The program focuses on Ohio State Standards for US History and the addition of the Ohio Military Museum will make the visit even more comprehensive. The teachers look forward to their visits each year and the feedback has always been very positive.

We need your help to be able to offer all of the schools in Stark County the ability to participate in the very important program.

Please consider making a tax deductible cash contribution to our US History Program. Your donation will be matched up to $5,000 by the SCF Grant. This can be done by sending a check payable to:

MAPS Air Museum
2260 International Parkway
North Canton, Ohio 44720

Please put a note on the check: MAPS US History Program

Thank you for supporting this very important educational program.

2016 - Welcomed with New Flags


I can't think of anything more important than starting 2016 with brand new flags. Rick Hamlet, Bob Schwartz, Steve Satchell and I braved the bitter cold wind to setup the adjustments of our new flags. They were provided by Rolling Thunder Chapter #2, Ty Geiser.

IMG_1052During the current threat of terrorism and the finger pointing going on in our government, it is very important that we remember what made this country strong. It was compromise, having a sense for the big picture, doing what is right for the common people and respecting our first responders and veterans. Placing new larger flags on our poles at MAPS seems very appropriate at this very important time in our country's history. When you see a fireman, policeman or veteran, walk up, shake their hand and thank them for their service. Let's go back to the basics and start caring about each other.

God Bless our wonderful Country, MAPS Air Museum and our Membership.
