Join us at Goodman Center for February 19 meeting

What do airplanes and circuses have in common?

They both occupied land at the north end of North Street. The Madison Airport was there in the 1920s and 1930s and the area was Madison’s circus grounds from the 1920s through the 1940s.

Joan Phelan and Ann Waidelich will lead the discussion with special guest Fred Leidel, who worked for Orland Corbin building airplanes there in the 1930s.

We’ll meet from 2-4pm on February 19 at the Goodman Community Center. Bring you memories and memorabilia for a “high flying” discussion.
