Girlfriends of the Airport
Girlfriends of the Airport (Mary Ann Allred, Donna Belt, Mary Bene, Paula Brown, Jaime Dobbins, Kae Hopper, Tiffany McKibben, and Ramona Seitz) is a volunteer support group helping to market the airport and produce events which support the airport and the Grand Lake Area Community. The “Girlfriends” typically average an event per month.
The Event Facility at the airport includes a large, lighted Pavilion, six power poles with 16 outlets on each and spread in a semi-circle with the Pavilion in the center for vendors, teams or booths. The Pavilion power is adequate for a large band.
The events include; War Bird fly-in, Food Fly-ins, Annual Hook-N-Cookoff and Oktoberfest, Aviation Exploration for school students to encourage careers in aviation.
As you can see, the possibilities are endless with a diverse range of facilities and land.
