NEW ITEMS ONLINE!

We have added some new items to our online shop including our new velour Temora Aviation Museum Beach Towels, which would make an ideal gift for the summer holidays. The towels are available in six different colours: navy, pink, black, orange, light blue and red. Each towel has Temora Aviation Museum and six aircraft printed in a lighter shade. They can be found in the Museum Merchandise category.

Three more DVDs have been added to our range, they are a series of DVDs called ‘Classic Cockpits’. Each DVD features one particular aircraft – Vampire, Catalina or DC-3. Footage shows the aircraft in detail, inside the cockpit as well as outside, along with spectacular air-to-air coverage.

WE COULDN’T DO WITHOUT THE HELP OF OUR VOLUNTEERS

The Museum would like to acknowledge the wonderful support of our volunteers throughout 2008. On a daily basis, visitors are offered the opportunity to be escorted by a volunteer when viewing our displays at the Museum. These dedicated people offer their knowledge of the Museum’s aircraft and other exhibits to provide a personal experience for every visitor on each tour.
On Flying Weekends the role of the volunteer broadens to include support to visitors in the car park, greeting and assisting visitors in the giftshop and merchandise areas, helping children enjoy their time in Kid’s Corner, and generally mingling with visitors throughout the Museum to ensure everyone enjoys their stay! The Volunteer Program is a very important part of the Museum and we are sincerely grateful to each volunteer for their enthusiasm and tireless work.

Volunteers’ service hours are honourably recognised by the Museum. Volunteers Anne Widdows and Keith Brabin received additional recognition for service as volunteers, through their nomination at the 2008 NSW Volunteer of the Year Awards for services provided to the Temora Aviation Museum. Anne and Keith have both given over 5000 hours to the Museum and its visitors since its commencement. Congratulations to Anne and Keith.

Having just turned 80 years of age Neva Cochrane retired from the Volunteer Program at the November Flying Weekend completing 5 years of service to the Museum and Visitors. During her time with us Neva contributed 1615 hours of her precious time. We thank Neva sincerely for her wonderful contribution and wish her well in her retirement!
