HISTORICAL RESEARCH MEETING
On Thursday, August 11, CBW officers Ivan Livi, Dennis Yerkey and Clifford Yerkey met with Edward Lyons, North Belle Vernon Mayor and Ron Paglia, writer for the Valley Independent newspaper at La Eda’s restaurant in Monessen, Pa. The informal meeting was in regards to the research and work that was done for newsletter articles about the aviation activities that occurred in the Belle Vernon area during the 1930s and 1940s. Ron Paglia’s access to historical newspaper archives has made the research and writings successful. Plans were made to further investigate historical data from that period that will be of interest to the populace of the Mon Valley and the Pittsburgh area in general.
