Thank you to everyone who made the first annual MAPS Veteran’s Day Celebration a great time had by many. Val Kinney coordinated the event and we appreciate her professionalism and dedication to our veterans. We are looking forward to an even better event next year.
Special thanks to Sound of South (Choir from Canton South High School) who are pictured here with Mr. Ralph Lynn as he resites “High Flight.” Thank you Mr. Lynn.
Long time member/volunteer/supporter Fred Lindsay digs the hole for the P-51 Monument on Massillon Road. Thanks to everyone who has pitched in on this major project. It will become a wonderful tribute to our members and the National Guard. We have inspector approval and Mark Luntz will take over to set the pole and get ready to pour the concrete shortly thereafter.
Special thank you to Mark Stucky who advised us on this entire project. We appreciate the expertise that he brought to the project.
Mark Lunz Construction, set the pole and poured the concrete.
This year the MAPS Air Museum will be holding a Veteran’s Day Program to honor those who have fought, and continue to fight, for our country. This program is for veterans and their families and if you wish to attend please fill out the posted form and return it to the museum as soon as possible to ensure a place in the celebration. This is a limited event and we will accept as many people as we can until the event is filled. If you have any questions please feel free to contact the museum at 330.896.6332.
The dinner will be catered by the 356fth Fighter Group so the food will be outstanding and there will be a band that will play 60′s and 70′s music.

On Wednesday Oct 2, 2013, we conducted a ground breaking ceremony for the P-51 Memorial on Massillon Road. City of Green, Mayor Norton and CAK Airport President along with a National Guard Captain Brian Eshbock and Bob Withee performed the ceremony. Thank you all for supporting MAPS Air Museum over the years and I know we are all looking forward to seeing the various stages of the construction. Here we go!
