VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH!
Below is Chris. Chris is a student pilot and one of our newest members of GAPS. Chris just moved into the area and visits the airport with his toddler son to see the airplanes. He knew we were looking for flowers and plants as an airport improvement project.

When he saw his neighbor digging up flowers he immediately thought of the airport. All of us had a good laugh when he drove up to the Bluebird Aerodrome hangar with flowers sticking out of his window and car door! We have placed the flowers in temporary planting area and will eventually put them out by the fuel tank. Thanks again, Chris!
