We hope to see you in a couple of weeks at the Amelia Earhart Festival

I'm telling you.... Kansas has a LOT going on! Here's more from this great Midwest state.

Calling all Amelia Earhart fans- The Amelia Earhart Festival is coming up July 19-20, 2019! Atchison Kansas is where it's all at.

"On a recent visit to Atchison, Kansas I was introduced to Amelia Earhart and her passion for flying. In case you don’t know, Amelia Earhart is most recognized for being the first woman to fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean."

5 years ago today, we took to the skies together, kicking off a 28,000 mile flight around the world. @shanerjordan, we had quite an adventure up there! To commemorate the 5 year anniversary, I’ve painted 16 “aerial abstract” works that will be displayed in Atchison, Kansas at the Amelia Earhart Festival. Images to come... for now, I just want to enjoy the memories of what it felt like to press that throttle forward and take flight on a global adventure ❤️✈️❤️ #flywithamelia #ameliaearhart #adventure #colorado #denver

Amelia Earhart Airport News

Grant Awards - The City received two KDOT Aviation grants for asphalt preservation services on the runway and taxiway. The total project cost is $68,750 with the grants covering 90%.

Amelia Earhart Air Hangar Museum & Terminal Update – The Atchison Amelia Earhart Foundation and the City are partnering on the construction of new parking spaces and road improvements this summer in conjunction with the new Air Hangar Museum and Terminal project that is nearing completion. The Foundation expects substantial completion in August with the next big phase of the project coming with the realization of a fully interactive STEM museum with expected completion in 2021. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and is aimed toward providing children with practical environments for learning and showing them how to use their educations to interconnect with the world around them.

The Atchison Area Chamber of Commerce is scheduling group tours to view Muriel, the museum's centerpiece and last known Lockheed Electra L-10E in existence - the same model that Amelia flew when she disappeared. To schedule a tour, call (913) 367-2427.

Upcoming Events

Thanks to a partnership between the Atchison Amelia Earhart Foundation and Rainbow Communications the Amelia Earhart Airport will soon have access to high speed fiber internet service. Rainbow Communications plans to extend the recently completed fiber infrastructure at the Shannon Industrial Park to create the four mile connection to the Amelia Earhart Memorial Airport. The Atchison Amelia Earhart Foundation expects to have the fiber internet service in place later this year as construction on the Amelia Earhart Hangar Museum finishes.

“The Atchison Amelia Earhart Foundation is delighted to partner with Rainbow Communications to supply high quality fiber and internet to our AE Hangar Museum,” said foundation President Karen Seaberg. “The buried fiber will not only benefit the museum, but also the Airport and residents along 286th Road, bringing fiber that much closer to the City of Atchison.”

The fiber internet service will provide up to 1 GB / sec upload and download speeds. The Atchison Amelia Earhart Foundation is contributing $171,602 toward construction to make the project feasible.

“Fast, reliable internet, economic development and community development, to name a few, come with the future proof technology of a Fiber Optic Network,” Smith said. “Rainbow Communications is excited about the opportunity to partner with the Atchison Amelia Earhart Foundation to provide this service.”

As a young girl, Amelia Earhart enjoyed sports, built traps to catch chickens, and felt, in general, "extremely unladylike." "Unfortunately," she said later, "I lived at a time when girls were still girls." And yet she still found her own path, she flew—an important reminder during Women in Aviation International Girls in Aviation Day this week. #GIAD18 #FlyGirlsBook www.flygirlsbook.com

When she was learning to fly, Amelia Earhart bought a leather jacket and slept in it, so it would appear more wrinkled, more weathered. It was only later that she decided maybe she would change the world. Read more in my new book FLY GIRLS coming on Tuesday!

On this day, in 1897, a daughter was born to Edwin and Amy Earhart in the small town of Atchison, Kansas. She was a different sort of girl—and she knew it, even at a young age.

She liked to read books. But she didn't like to sew, or play with dolls, or wear dresses. "Feminine clothing, consisting of skirts and high heels," she said later, "certainly make more difficult natural freedom of movement." And this girl wanted to move.

As she saw it, there were two kinds of stones. One that just sat there—and one that rolled. She was determined to be the latter, making her own path in the world, doing as she pleased.

She once asked for a football for Christmas. She once built a rollercoaster out of two-by-fours in the yard. She liked exploring caves, and catching chickens, and jumping fences—"unladylike" endeavors that made her, in her opinion, "a horrid little girl." But, also, a great woman.

Happy Birthday, Amelia Earhart. And let us remember on this day that girls and boys everywhere should be free to choose their own games, wear what they want, be who they are. You never know where they're going. www.flygirlsbook.com #FlyGirlsBook
