Flint Hills EAA Chapter 1364

About Me

 Lois & Jim are active volunteers in Onaga, Ks, and were in charge of organizing and overseeing an all volunteer planned and built, 9,500 sq.ft. playground made mostly of composite lumber and having chipped blue rubber ground cover. Local and area fundraising & 3 grants, with no tax money involved, paid the $152,000 cost, including a new restroom.  Jim still mows and maintains the park.   Lois also wrote and was awarded a KDOT grant for a new streetscape in downtown with new sidewalks, curbs, gutters and street.  Lois helped form and is the directory for Tri-Cities Economic Eco Devo (Wheaton, Onaga, Havensville).  In that capacity they hold the Onaga Breakfast Fly-In on the 1st Saturday in October (Cancelled for 2011) from 8 am -11 am, at the Onaga Chas. Grutzmacher Airport.  A Grass landing strip just south of the Cool Springs Golf Course and west of Heritage Springs New Subdivision which offers Free Building Lots, 10-year tax rebates and no Specials, all in the very NW part of Onaga.  If you would like to fly-in anytime, play some golf, eat, sight see, and could use free transportation, or if you have questions, call Jim at 785-844-3740, Lois at 785-844-3741 or home 785-889-0151.
