Liz Wall Strohfus Airfield Dedication

Several months ago Faribault Branch Member Gloria Olson proposed that we try to have the Faribault Airport named after WWII Airforce Pilot Liz Strohfus.  Liz was born and raised in Faribault, MN.  Gloria and her committee were successful.  The following pictures were taken at the dedication.
