Fun evening at the APA Fall Social in Mesa!
By Susan Wearly and Mary James
Thirty pilots and aviation enthusiasts gathered at The Monastery Restaurant in Mesa next to Falcon Field on Thursday, October 13th for the APA’s Fall Social. Plenty of food, drinks and comradery were had by all. The weather was perfect for our outdoor patio, with seating around tables decorated with fancy pumpkins, spiders, a few snakes, and plenty of Halloween candy.
And yes, the Question Board was also present with most of our guests taking a shot at answering correctly the two questions. Congratulations to Marcia Busching for correctly answering Question #1 and taking home a bottle of Silver Patron Tequila. Congrats to our very own Andrew Vogeney, APA Scholarship Chair, for correctly answering Question #2 and taking home a bottle of Gray Goose Vodka.
(Several guests answered the questions correctly so we put all of the winning names back in the box, shook them up and drew one winner for each question.)
Proceeds from the evening totaled $205 which will go to our Scholarship Fund. What a great way to have fun and raise money for scholarships!
The APA is thrilled that we have such good turn-outs for our socials. Last spring’s social at Harold’s Corral in Cave Creek and this fall’s social at The Monastery are great ways for us to get together and to support general aviation in Arizona.
Watch for news of the next social scheduled for the Spring of 2017 – we look forward to seeing you then!
