As part of the Stratus Project we are very keen to promote Derry and it’s connection to Amelia Earhart.
Last wednesday Colin and I went up to Derry for the anniversary of Earhart’s landing and were very fortunate to have a meeting with the members of the Amelia Earhart Friendship Society. Based in Derry the AEFS has the same goals as us, to promote Earhart, to make the landing site more accessible, and to work towards a permanent exhibition in the city.
We have decided that we are going to create a partnership between Stratus and the Friendship Society to enable us to work together to achieve our mutual goals. Stratus will soon be helping them to build a website and they have some big plans for membership and events etc.
On a final note, we are looking to have a joint fundraiser in Derry in september. Watch this space!
