Oct 7, 2018 – Weather tried but couldn’t destroy a celebratory reception for our UFOs most senior member, Eugene Engledow. Gene’s gracious family joined the UFO reception planned for his 105th birthday, October 7, 2018.

Since this UFO event combined the family’s birthday celebration with the UFOs, we also invited the local weekly newspaper. Present were several local pilots with family, the editor of the “Bolivar Herald – Free Press”, Gene’s family, UFO MO/IA representative Norman Beyer, local UFO member Sam Swihart, and Kansas UFO member Sarah Ratley. Sarah was one of the UFOs who planned to fly in but couldn’t due to storms, but she drove from Kansas to meet and celebrate with Gene.
