EAA AirVenture Apollo Lunch

June 22, 2017 - EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2017 will be a special year as we commemorate the Apollo program on the 50th anniversary of Apollo 1. We’d like to provide an opportunity for those who worked on the Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo programs to meet and reminisce with their colleagues who were instrumental in making one of the greatest achievements of mankind possible.

EAA is sponsoring a lunch on Thursday, July 27, in the Founders’ Wing mezzanine of the EAA Aviation Museum. The Apollo astronauts who will be on-hand for our anniversary celebration have been invited to join others who worked on those programs.

Space will be limited and an invitation is required to attend. To receive an invitation, those who were involved with Mercury, Gemini, and Apollo can send an e-mail to Jane Smith with “Apollo Lunch” as the subject line. In your e-mail please include which program you worked on, what your job was, and what years you were involved. Invitations will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis until capacity is reached.

If you have photos of you in a work environment or other interesting photos from your work experience on the program that you’d like to share, please scan and send them with your request. If chosen, you will receive a response invitation by e-mail that you will need to bring with you to be admitted to the lunch.

If you receive an invitation it will be limited to you and one guest. Due to the nature of this special event, there will not be an opportunity for autographs or to have memorabilia signed.
