Twelve of our OVEB club members toured the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force on Sunday, October 16th. We had a wonderful experience seeing the new 224,000 square foot fourth building. The new building allowed us to enter four President's aircraft: FDR's, Truman's, Eisenhower's and JFK's. We ended up at Giovanni's Restaurant in Fairborn where six more members joined us for dinner.

On Saturday November 12th we will start with lunch at Buckhead on Riverboat Row in Bellview, KY and then tour the newly opened New Riff Distillery and the Party Source. The employee-owned Party Source is the nation's largest liquor store. We'll end the tour at the on-sight Eight Ball Brewery with a beer tasting.
