GREAT LAKES INTERNATIONAL AIR SHOW 3 The bene ts of the 20131 Great Lakes International Air Show will be seen long after the planes have left and the crowds have dispersed. This event reinvests in community non pro ts including the St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital Foundation, the Military Family Resource Centre (London), the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada, St. John Ambulance, and the Air Cadets. I remember attending my rst air show over thirty years ago. Many subsequent air shows inspired a life-long love of aviation, history and admiration for those who choose to serve in the defence of our way of life. I hope the Great Lakes International Air Show has the same resonance for your family. Jim Graham, President Great Lakes International Air Show Board of Directors JUNE 28-30, 2013, ST THOMAS, ONTARIO CANADA
