Calgary is known for its hospitality, and the chapter did its part to greet aviation indus- try leaders and members from all over Canada. ✈ BLUEGRASS CHAPTER While planning a huge Girls in Aviation day event on Septem- ber 22, the Bluegrass Chapter has been having fun painting at Pinot's Palette. Thank you to the Houston Chapter for the idea! Everyone did a great job painting their planes, and of course forming new friendships or just reconnecting with old friends. The chapter also had our annual fundraiser at the Lee Bottom Sinful Sunday ice cream social, where the turnout was good, de- spite challenging weather. The chapter raised money for the lo- cal Bluegrass Ninety-Nines Chapter, Lee Bottom Flying Field, and the WAI Bluegrass Chapter for a Learn to Fly scholarship that will be awarded during this year's Girls in Aviation Day chapter event. ✈ GREATER LOS ANGELES AREA CHAPTER The Greater Los Angeles Chapter had a social event at the Proud Bird aviaƟon-themed bazaar near LAX, hosƟng a group of potenƟal new members.
