DeWitt County Museum Partnering With John Warner for Special Aviation Exhibit

Aviation and DeWitt County.


It's a story that John Warner wants to tell and so he is partnering with the DeWitt County Museum to make it happen. On the WHOW Morning Show Tuesday, Director Joey Long told Regional Radio she is very excited about this exhibit and will need the public's help in making it happen.

According to Warner, there is a long history of aviation in DeWitt County and he wants to tell that story. He says from airline hostesses to war veteran pilots or just airport workers, there are stories worth telling.



A friend and colleague of Warner's, Denis Hambucken is going to help with the exhibit. He indicates he's worked closely with Warner on other museum exhibits in other places and is also a photographer and designer.



Long says if anyone is interested in contributing to this exhibit or has stories and artifacts they are unsure if the Museum would be interested in those, to contact the Museum either on Facebook or give them a call.



The exhibit is targeted to get up and going in June of 2022.
