Volunteers needed for Wings & Wheels at Robertson Field Airport (4B8), Plainville, Connecticut

The Wings & Wheels organizers are seeking volunteers to help with the planning for the 2nd Annual Car Show & Fly-In at Robertson Airport to be held on Sunday, June 2. (Rain date will be June 9.)

Anyone interested in helping are invited to attend the next meeting of Wings & Wheels on Thursday, Jan. 10 at 6 p.m. in the Plainville Library Auditorium.

Help is needed in various areas including advertising, entertainment, sponsorships, car show, fly-in, parking, marketing, food sales and grounds preparation and clean-up.

“Based upon the feedback that we received from our inaugural event, next year’s event is expected to be bigger and better,” said Scott Saunders, Air-Boss for the event, in a press release. He went on in the release, “A small group of dedicated individuals helped to plan and run last year’s program. Because we expect this great event to be much larger than last year, we will need many more volunteers to help us with the pre-planning for future events.”

The “Annual Car Show & Fly-In at Robertson Airport” raises monies for charity.

In the first year, it raised a total of $22,000 for this one-day event.

Donations of $11,000 each was made to the Plainville Food Pantry and the Petit Family Foundation.

Potential volunteers are invited to attend the Wings & Wheels meeting on Thursday, Jan. 10 at the Plainville Library Auditorium at 6 p.m.

People can also get more information by contacting Scott Saunders at (860)747-8837.
