Gateway Chapter of the Missouri Pilots Association


Gateway Chapter Picnic

Come join us for our annual picnic at St. Charles County Smartt Field, in the Admin. Building in the former restaurant area. Our chapter provides Popeye's fried chicken. (See Note below.) Everyone brings a side dish or dessert to share.


There won't be any program or speaker at the picnic, but we will have a quick meeting for election of officers.

When: Wednesday, June 21, 2017
Where: Smartt Airport Admin. Bldg.
Dinner: 6:30 P.M.

NOTE: Please call Jean Murry at 314-469-3541 or email Donna.Crandell@Staples.com by Monday, June 19, if you plan to attend, so we know how much Popeye's chicken to order. Thank you!

Although our June picnic will be at Smartt Airport, we normally meet on the third Wednesday of each month at Creve Coeur American Legion Post 397, 934 Rue De La Banque Drive, Creve Coeur, MO 63141. For our meetings there, the doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the buffet line begins at 6:30, followed by the program at 7:30. It is not necessary to dine with us to attend the program at 7:30 p.m. We are a friendly and informal group, and we do ask that you make dinner reservations by the Monday evening preceding the meeting date. Cost of the meal is $17.00 at the regular monthly meetings. For those dinner reservations, call Jean or email Donna, at phone # or email address listed in "Note" above. The picnic on June 21 is free.
