The namesake of our event is in tribute and celebration of the late Rod Trowbridge. In addition to a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend, Rod Trowbridge was a skilled pilot of his Cessna 182. Mr. Trowbridge passed in the spring of 2020 and with the coronavirus regulations in full shut-down mode, a proper visitation and celebration was not allowed at the time.
As time has passed and the quarantines have lifted however, we could not think of a better memorial than inviting fellow pilots from around the country to fly in and join us for a day of celebration, fun and festivities. With friends, family and our entire community invited to join us as well, our event is a day packed full of fun, and memorial to all that we have lost in this past year.
With the challenges in place for public gatherings, we realize our loved one was not the only one that was alone in their passing, and we hope others might attend our event in their own personal tribute as well. And whether able to attend, we do invite anyone that would like to memorialize their loved ones and include them in our celebration of life(s)!
We invite you to join us in memorializing, blessing, rejoicing and celebrating loved ones we have lost.
May you rest in peace here on Earth, and forever rejoice in God's kingdom above. Until we are reunited again, know that you are loved and missed. And you are never forgotten. In Jesus' name, Amen.
