I am the News Director for the Townsquare Media/Augusta-Waterville stations and also the host of our public affairs show, "Issues," Sunday mornings! Make sure you come say "Hi" to me at one of our many live local broadcasts.
This past Saturday (August 2) was an event to honor the 80th anniversary of Amelia Earhart’s visit to Maine. At Maine Instrument Flight they had a display about Earhart and a special focus on encouraging girls and women to learn to fly. One of the old newspaper photos in the display about Earhart’s visit to Augusta caught my attention. The caption on the photo did not identify the girl other than 'Augusta girl'. I asked if anyone knew who the little girl was in the photo? They said "probably just a local girl." Yes, but WHO is she?? Did she live in Augusta? Does she still? So. Many. Questions.
I love planes. One of the things I really like about living in Augusta because I get to see planes taking off and landing at the Augusta State Airport and Maine Instrument Flight. I also like things that encourage girls look at non traditions careers or hobbies they might love. So this event is right up my alley. This Saturday (August 2) the 80th anniversary of Amelia Earhart’s visit to Maine will be honored with an informational display about Earhart and a special focus on encouraging girls and women to learn to fly.
