Happy 100th anniversa­ry to the US National Parks! To celebrate, our Sisters visited Huffman Prairie Flying Field Interpre­tive Center in Dayton. From 1904-05, Wilbur and Orville Wright used the field to per­fect controlled flight. Located on Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio, Huffman Prairie was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1990.
