Flying Through South Carolina? Here's A New Place To Take A
Wednesday afternoon a 1730, the Cadet Color Guard from the
Greenville Civil Air Patrol will do a flag raising ceremony at the
new Runway Café at South Carolina's Greenville Downtown
Airport (KGMU). "Our Cadets range from 12 to 18 years old, who have
an interest in aviation and search and rescue operations as well as
a tremendous amount of pride in this nation," stated Ron Hardgrave,
Honor Guard co-ordinator.
"These young cadets take pride in their role as members of the
Colors unit and they consider it an honor to raise the flag for the
first time at the Runway Cafe during this ceremony," added
"Come check out the new Runway Café, watch the ceremony
and, if you like, stay for dinner!," invited Lem Winesett, Part
Owner in the Runway Cafe.
The Runway Café is located at 21 Airport Road Extension
in Greenville, SC. KGMU is the busiest general aviation airport in
South Carolina and is a self-sufficient entity with financial
strength that doesn't rely on local taxpayers for funding.
The airport is home to more than 25 aviation-related businesses
creating 453 jobs that annually contribute more than $35.2 million
to the Upstate economy.
