FROM THE COCKPIT (FLT CAPTAIN'S LOG: 8 - 16): Please note that our August meeting this month will be on the fourth Tuesday at Carillon Park on 23 August. This will be another casual event for Daedalians, their spouses and guests. Prior to dinner you will have an opportunity to go through Carillon Park. We have set up an extraordinary opportunity at the park in the bicycle shop at 3 PM. Mr. Richard “Dick” Bridgman will share stories of the Wright Brothers from their bicycle shop days to their flying activities. Dick is a former educator and longtime pilot who shares a family connection with the Wright Brothers. As a longtime volunteer at the Wright Brothers Aviation Center at Carillon Historical Park, Dick will share his knowledge and personal stories about these fellow Ohio boys. You may go through the park at your leisure prior to Mr. Bridgman’s talk. If 25 or more people sign up to go through the park, we will get a group rate on admission of $7 adults and $6 seniors, but you will need to tell the person selling tickets for the park that you are part of the Daedalian group. The park admission will be separate from the price of dinner. Please email Ed Mentzer at mailto:Lahmreservations@aol.com if you plan on going to the park before dinner. If you have never been to Carillon you can visit its website at: http://daytonhistory.org/visit/dayton-history-sites/carillon-historical-park. Our gathering in the Bier Hall will start at 5 o'clock for happy hour and dinner will start at 6 o'clock. This is an hour earlier than normal because Carillon Park closes at 5:00. We will need an accurate head count ten days prior to the event – so please don’t delay and sign up today! We have another prestigious speaker scheduled that evening. Don’t miss hearing Dr. Paul Lockhart speak on Dayton’s involvement in WWI. Dr Lockhart is an American historian who specializes in American and Scandinavian military history. He has authored several well-known books such as The Drillmaster of Valley Forge: The Baron de Steuben and the Making of the American Army (New York: HarperCollins, 2008) and The Whites of Their Eyes: Bunker Hill, the First American Army, and the Emergence of George Washington (New York: HarperCollins, 2011). He’s a native of Poughkeepsie, New York. Since 1989, Lockhart has taught at Wright State University. Prior to working with the American Revolution, Lockhart published four books dealing with Scandinavian military history. He is currently working with Wright State University's CELIA (Collaborative Education, Leadership & Innovation in the Arts) on a project to commemorate the 100th anniversary of World War One in Dayton, Ohio. He is also working on a book focusing on the last month of WWI. .
