The South Carolina Historic Aviation Foundation (SCHAF) is headquartered at the Jim Hamilton - Owens Field Airport and is working to restore and preserve the B-25C Mitchell Medium Bomber which was reclaimed from the bottom of Lake Greenwood where it had rested since 1944.

While you are at Jim Hamilton - Owens Field Airport be sure to visit the terminal which houses several historic displays about SC aviation history including the South Carolina Aviation Hall of Fame.

You may also want to visit the Hunter-Gatherer Brewery which is newly opened in the historic Curtiss-Wright Hanger on the west end of the airport.

Crier emails
We are making an effort to send out these informational emails around the first of every month to keep neighbors up do date on neighborhood events, and other events and information of interest. It's cheaper and better for the environment not to print and pass out fliers! But we could all probably use the exercise!

If you have information of interest to the neighborhood, please pass it along and we may include it in a future Crier.

Tell your friends and neighbors to subscribe. No membership required, but of course we would like everybody to join! New neighbor? Let us know and we'll send out the welcome wagon.
