This might be the best issue we have ever seen.
This issue contains the bio's of the five candidates running for four open directors positions.
We have also added several sections to the Briefing that were created because we listened to our readers comments. We have given recognition to our new members, our members with anniversaries and have added a section on our restoration activities.
We hope you enjoy.

Thank you for your support.
Work began on Thursday April 30 and the S & K employees finish on Saturday May 2.
We want to make sure that we thank the S & K Asphalt & Concrete Company, Akron and all their employees for the wonderful transformation that they created at MAPS. They took a bunch of pot holes, loose gravel, trenches and chunks of asphalt then turned it into a beautiful parking lot.
Thank you to all our visitors and volunteers for a very successful event.
We had about 935 visitors come to eat breakfast.
Please come see all of the improvements that we have done to the museum and enjoy pancakes for the price of admission. Its a wonderful time for all ages.
The results of the 2015 MAPS Raffle are as follows:
We would like to thank everyone who sold tickets in support of this very important fund raiser for MAPS. We do this during a very slow time and it helps pay our huge winter utility bills. This year we had revenue of $11,855 and represented 43.5% participation from our membership. Again, thank you for your support of this very important fund raiser.
We would like to thank the recovery crew headed by Wayne Noall and Jerry Leeks. Also included on the team were Tony Bistransky, Paul Gates, and Chet Starn. We want to thank all of them for their tireless effort to bring the F-16 to her new home at MAPS Air Museum. She arrived on April 18 at 10:00 with a crowd of onlookers after eight years of saving and planning. Also, thanks to everyone who supported the project.

She crashed in a valley in Canada in 1942. She was recovered in 1971. She came to MAPS in 1995. She got her nose in 2015. What a journey! Thank you to the entire restoration crew for their efforts.
