6th - 7:25 PM
NLHS would like to extend a sincere "Thank
You" to all those who make our May 6 memorial event each year such
a great success. Several hundred people attend the Hindenburg Memorial
Service and the airship artifact display at the Lakehurst Borough Community
Center. (Due to the tragic events of Sept. 11, 2001, and the heightened
security alert at the base, there was only a private memorial services
for NLHS members held at the base on May 6, 2002.)
Below are some pictures from our 2001 Memorial
|NLHS members Glenn Skidmore and Hank Applegate
were on hand to display some beautiful and rare airship artifacts and memorabilia.
Glenn, our resident artist, built the model of the Shenandoah in the foreground
of the photo and also finished his painting of the ROMA just in time for
presentation to the U.S. Army. Hank, a founding member of NLHS, shared
his expertise with all in attendance.
||Don "moneybags" Adams spent the entire
day setting up displays and handling sales. Fueled only by a bag
of potato chips and a soda for dinner, Don worked long into the night.
Hey Don, is that the NLHS bank account in your hand?
|The memorial service began promptly
at 7:25 p.m., the exact time of the Hindenburg disaster. Those in
attendance showed great reverence for all who perished in airship accidents.
