PBY Memorial Foundation to announce plans for future expansion

PBY Memorial Foundation is hoping for more room to spread its wings.

Last year good progress was made for the museum, and members hope to do even better in 2017, said Wil Shellenberger, the foundation’s president.

A community lunch is set for 11:30 a.m., Tuesday, Feb. 21, at the Oak Harbor Elk’s Lodge.

The foundation will unveil plans for a phased expansion to relocate the museum into a hangar space that’s a more appropriate place for the PBY static display aircraft, Shellenberger said. Cost of lunch is $12 at the door.

The foundation will also host “Celebration of Flight” a fundraising dinner and auction, May 20, at the Elk’s Lodge located at 155 N.E. Ernst St., Oak Harbor.
