18 YOUNG EAGLES FLOWN ON NOVEMBER 10, 2001
(A 19th Young Eagle had a one-to-one chat with pilot and inspected pilot's plane by remained hesitant to actually fly that day. Not to worry. We look forward to seeing him next year when he feels ready to "Fly with the eagles")
The weather may have been chilly November 10th, but the enthusiasm and gratitude of the Young Eagles and thir families warmed the day for us.
Congratulations and welcome to new Young Eagles from Acton, Brookline, Hopkinton, Maynard and Stow. And thank you to the wonderful pilots of Chapter 196.

Additional pilots and ground crew November 10th included Charlie Smith, Fred Moses, Hector Constantzos (Charlie coordinated the whole thing, Fred and Hector were the professional photographers for the day) and a friend Peter Ochsner, visiting Charlie and Mary Smith helped out as photographer with Charlie when two Young Eagles were flown at Noon. Thank you friends and members alike. Speaking of friends, new volunteer Mary Redfield filled in countless certificates at the registration desk(s) as Judy McGee worked on the tracking sheet and both kept things moving. Mary Smith and I (Betty-Lee) were also at the registration area. Thank you, girls, it's been great to work with you all.
Cub Scouts from Den 8 of Cub Scout Pack 45 from Acton were present with Pack Master Bryan Lentrichia. A great group, hope to see them again. I was a Den Mother and seeing the young men in their Cub Scout uniforms brought back fond memories.
Registration in a cozy, warm airport office was very, very, very much appreciated. Thank you, Minute Man Air Field Airport Manager, Mr. Don McPherson. (He's the good looking fellow you meet at the airport office who knows just about everything about the airport and how it works and what needs to be done, and does it.)
Nancy's Air Field Cafe, with Nancy and her wonderful staff, always make us feel welcome and at home. They have a delicious and varied menu for breakfast and lunch. Chapter 196 is fortunate to be able to hold their meetings at the Cafe.
