The Plane

Huge thank you to Ingenious Coffee Roasters on Main Street in Marion, NC for their support. I sit there with my laptop, programming for work, and see the owner Eli a few times per week. Eli Ornberg and his wonderful coffee shop support both the plane and EAA Chapter 1662 activities, including Young Eagle events held at Shiflet Field. I am proud to represent this coffee shop and the wonderful burgeoning community that is rapidly developing in Marion, NC.
