    This fund raiser might be of interest to many, so if you can pass it along to others that may be interested I'll appreciate that very much.   Thanks,

    Now here is the perfect Christmas gift for any former Moffett sailor.

    Hope everyone has a Happy Holidays.

    Come see us at “your” museum soon.



    As most of you are aware, Moffett Field's Hangar One has been de-skinned and all that is left is the steel skeleton.
    Most folks were not aware that the top of the Hangar was covered in 2x6 tongue & groove redwood planks from the local forests, and then topped with corrugated metal. 

    The Moffett Museum is the recipient of a small amount of these planks.  These have been split in half (now approximately  1x6) and cut into 11" to 12" sections.  We are offering two versions of these pieces of history for a donation to the Moffett Field Historical Society.  They are engraved with the logo of the USS Macon entering the Hangar.  A personalized version has room for three lines of 20 characters.  The generic version is available for a $100.00 donation.  The personalized version is available for a $125.00 donation.  These donations are tax-deductible.   Please see the enclosed file for ordering your piece of history, and a legacy to probably the best place a USN Sailor could have been stationed.

    You can become a real Plank Owner of Hangar One by ordering your plank at the museum or by mailing your order to:
    MFHS, PO Box 16, Moffett Field, CA 94034-0016.  Call (650) 964-4024 for further information.

    Please provide widest dissemination....
