Whether you fly, float, drive, bike, or walk in, the Washington Island Lions Club has your lunch plans covered on Saturday. The Washington Island Lions Club will host its Fly-In Fish Boil on Saturday when dozens of pilots land their planes at the airport to grab a plate of food and a little camaraderie before taking off again for the next step in their journey. It is part of a busy month for aviation enthusiasts. The Rio Creek Aviation Foundation hosted its annual fly-in to kick off the month on July 2nd. At the end of July, thousands take to the air to fly into Oshkosh for the annual EAA AirVenture. For the Washington Island Lions, member Joel Gunnlaugsson says it is great to see familiar faces and raise vital funds for local causes.
The Washington Island Fly-In Fish Boil is open to non-pilots and even people who do not like fish (they will have hot dogs, too!) when it runs at the Washington Island Airport from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday.
