Oklahoma Sooner Squadron renames site in honor of Mike Harvey
by Mark Johnston July 18, 2015The Oklahoma Sooner Squadron Club lost one of their founding members, Mike Harvey three years ago. Mike served in numerous leadership roles throughout his 40 years as a member of the Sooner Squadron. The OK Sooner Squadron decided to honor Mike and his family by changing the name of the club field to the Mike Harvey Model Airpark. Club President Jim Ellis officially dedicated the new field name during a noon ceremony at their Dawn Patrol event on July 11th. Mike's wife Mary, son Mike, grandchildren, club members, event participants, and many friends were in attendance for this celebration.
I was in attendance for the event and Jim Ellis did a great Job with the dedication. Jim and Mike were very close and it was very hard for him. I hope I have as many friends when my time comes as did Mike Harvey.
Well Done by the Oklahoma Sooner Squadron!!!
