Soaring Society of America honored Henry Meyerrose with a CERTIFICATE OF APPRECIATION for 50 years of active membership in and service to Soaring Society of America. Most of that service has been at Caesar Creek Soaring Club because Henry was one of the courageous members of Soaring Society of Dayton who joined together to purchase the former dairy farm that is now our gliderport. Henry learned to fly gliders in Germany and brought his love of flying along with his expertise in woodworking and carpentry and related crafts and technologies when he immigrated to the United States. From the hard work in the early days to transform the former farm into a gliderport with a smooth grass-covered runway Henry has been involved with nearly every aspect of constructing and operating the gliderport. His craftsmanship has been applied to construction and maintenance of our buildings and grounds and his oversight of major projects has been invaluable to the club, most recently in improved drainage for our runway, siding for the old barn, siding for the farmhouse and interior maintenance and upgrading. Henry continues to serve on the Board of Directors.
Not all Henry’s time was spent working on the facilities. He was awarded his A and B Badges in 1986 and soon completed his C and Bronze badges. In 1988 Henry earned his Silver Badge.
Congratulations and thanks, Henry!
