What's Happening Now....



This world participation Event is growing in popularity as it provides a special day each year during the ‘giving season’  for those that wish to support Charities with  valued funding.  We have in place an Endowment Fund program to build towards sustaining our local attraction.  This funding also allows us to continue our goals of development with enhancing school tours and the educational component to the GGE history.  

We have been very grateful for the support through different pathways over the past two years of reduced admission fee revenues.  After serious discussion recently, we made the decision to leave our Admission structure as it is, sovisitors and families from all income levels have access to our Exhibit.  As an entire volunteer organization our team remains focused on providing a high level of experience. 

When considering a donation of any amount to the Glider Exhibit, please use this attached link, the big Red Button, for your use on Tuesday.  



After 5 Years.....  We have to increase the price on our Tshirts, Pullover Hoodies & Zip Hoodies.  The new prices will be effective  Oct 14th.
