Compass Hill celebration scheduled for Wednesday morning

Visit the new brick installation celebration Wednesday morning at Compass Hill.

Continuing the tradition that commenced last year, EAA’s Donor Relations Department will host an "Installation of New Bricks Celebration" at Compass Hill on the morning of Wednesday, July 30, beginning at 8:30 a.m. People who have placed bricks, as well as others who are captivated by this striking symbol of EAA’s values, are invited to attend.

Located adjacent to the Memorial Wall and Fergus Chapel, Compass Hill celebrates the qualities of innovation, excellence, and freedom that accompany personal flight. At its summit, Compass Hill incorporates a grand compass rose and features Larry Anderson’s beautiful "Directions" bronze sculpture depicting a family enjoying an aviation outing.

This year’s new bricks at the summit level were placed by Harriet Buxton, Gary Cotner, LaNette Davis, John Graham, Ron Lohr, Dan Majka, Christopher Nelsen, John Pereira, Brian Rohr, Michele Schott, and Carl and Pat Tortorige. Placing new bricks at the plaza level were Helen Clark, Mike Hance, Cindi Odom, Art Sereque Jr., and Eric and Debey Von.
