We’re just a few days away from the grand ribbon cutting ceremony at the Camdenton Memorial Lake Regional Airport and plans are underway for several activities.
One of those events is a walk and run to honor Fallen Missouri Soldiers and officials say the need over 140 people to participate in the event.
The run/walk will be free and open to all, and several Gold Star families have been invited to attend.
In addition to that, there will be a fundraiser for the 2022 Camdenton Airshow that will help pay for a once in a lifetime ride in an authentic World War II aircraft expected to be at next year’s show.
The event starts at 9AM on September 11th at the airport, with the ribbon cutting scheduled for noon.
