The Short Wing Piper Club has an Honor Roll to formally recognize members who are making or have made significant contributions to our Club.
Established in 1987, the Club welcomed its first members to our Hall of Honor. Recipients were announced in the July-August 1987 issue of the Short Wing Piper News. Seven members were recognized at that time: Robert A. Fuller, Steve Marsh, Edwin F. Wach, Kurt Schneider, Larry D. Smith, Lonnie McLaughlin and George Fruehauf.
In 2005, the Honor Roll, or Hall of Honor as it is often called, was revitalized with the induction of two new Honor Roll recipients – Frank Rush and Iris Morris.
Most years since, The Short Wing Piper Club has welcomed new members to our Hall of Honor. Honorees are members, past or present, who have been chosen by the membership for their “outstanding contribution to the Short Wing Piper Club and it’s goal to maintain and preserve the Piper Vagabonds, Clippers, Pacers, Tri-Pacers and Colts.”
Thanks to the efforts of member Peter Polen, who worked with the Piper Aviation Museum in Lock Haven, Pennslyvania, Hall of Honor recipients are recognized at our Short Wing Piper Club display in the Piper Museum. With this display, which was installed in 2004, we now have a prime location and national exposure to show the public who our honored members are.
