Questions about your membership may be sent to:
Denward Collins, III, Membership Coordinator

We will have a unique curator’s tour by Joshua Stoff of the Apollo Gallery and see the new exhibition, Space: A Journey to the Future. Grumman Corporation won the competition to build the Apollo Lunar Module (LM), the first spaceship to take humans to the moon and arguably the most historically important vehicle ever built on Long Island. On July 20, 1969, the LM-5 Eagle landed Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on the moon.

After the curator’s tour (and seeing the Cradle’s LM-13), we can watch in the Museum’s I-Max Theater the Apollo 11 documentary, which includes recently discovered, 70 mm. archival footage. The 47-minute, 2019 film received rave reviews as “inspiring and truly awesome.” Members must bring the announcement card mailed to your home address for admission. Doors open at 6:30 pm with refreshments; tour at 7 pm; movie follows tour at approximately 8:15 pm.
Directions: The Cradle of Aviation Museum is on Charles Lindbergh Blvd. (click link for map), at Mitchel Field in East Garden City. Take exit M4 from the Meadowbrook Parkway, following signs to Lindbergh Blvd and Museum Row. After going through the traffic light at Earl Ovington Blvd., turn right when you see the life-size figure in a space suit.

Save the dates: Sun. Sept. 15 —Suzanne Johnson, “Camp Upton: A Soldier City in the Wilderness” and Sunday, October 6, Annual Meeting and Luncheon at Hendrick’s Tavern, Roslyn
