July Monthly Dinner
Wed., July 6, 2016

Guest Speaker:
Charles Harber

No Host Bar Starts: 6:00 p.m.
Dinner Starts at 7:00 p.m.

Charlie Harber was born on July 19, 1920 in a small town near Abilene, Texas. He enlisted in the US Army Air Corps in February 1942 only two months after the attack on Pearl Harbor. After aircraft mechanic training in Lubbock, Texas and Tucson, Arizona he took a train to Fort Dix, New Jersey. After seven days on ship crossing the North Atlantic, he arrived at the 306th Bomb Group at Thurleigh, England which was about 50 miles North of London. There he was an aircraft mechanic on the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress until December 1945.

While in England he met Irene, a 22-year old British girl, at a dance. They were married on October 21, 1944 and she became an official “War Bride.” After the war Charlie and Irene moved to the Bay Area of California and he worked for United Airlines for 30 years. The Harbers raised four boys and one girl. Irene died in 1990 and Charlie married his present wife Jeanie. They moved to Templeton in 2009 and Charlie has been a very valuable member of the museum's restoration crew.

Carol Verstuyft Dennis Gage, host of My Classic Car, interviewing Carol Verstuyft, WWW8 Coordinator

Warbirds Wings & Wheels 8 was a tremendous success this year thanks to Dan and Carol Verstuyft and a terrific group of volunteers whom helped make it the largest event of the year. It attracted nearly 4,500 people and over 250 vehicles on display. Registered cars came from north of Petaluma, south from San Diego and east from Lake Havasu City. This year's event was filmed for TV by Dennis Gage. Showing is set for "early 2017 season."

A special "Thank You" goes out to the multitude of volunteers who worked together to ensure success. Thanks so much!
