More than 30 residents of Westchester and other local communities were recently honored for their role in operating the Flight Path Learning Center and Museum at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX).

The group of volunteers was “saluted” last month during an “April in Paris”-themed appreciation dinner at Flight Path in the LAX Imperial Terminal.

Flight Path president Rowena Ake commended the volunteer service of the board of directors, including Ethel Pattison and Vince Migliazzo, vice presidents; John Garstka, financial officer; Richard Brubaker, treasurer; and Julie Judge, corporate secretary.

Others honored include Robert Acherman, Nissen Davis, Seymour Kahn, Lori Keir, Barbara Keller, John Killen, David Lyon, Fr. Patrick McPolin (emeritus), Nancy Niles, Bruce Orriss, Morris Plotkin (emeritus), Fred Reeves, Bill Schoneberger (emeritus), Robert Slusser and Beverly Migliazzo, recording secretary.

Also recognized were Flight Path executive director Lee Nichols, director of volunteers Ann Proctor and LAX airport guides Marilyn Costigan, Eleanor Ginsberg, Marie Happ, Diane Miller, Dauna Semon and Mimi Salagy, who assist at the museum.

Flight Path is open 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday in the LAX Imperial Terminal, 6661 Imperial Highway, Westchester. Admission and parking are free.

The museum is operated by nonprofit Flight Path in cooperation with Los Angeles World Airports, the city agency that operates LAX.
