P.I.E. Members Salute An Army Nurse

Island Moon

The Padre Island Cyclists Saturday, April 20

On April 12th the P.I.E. (Padre Island Enrichment) members held their monthly luncheon at the Island’s Holiday Inn Beach Hotel. The program was speaker Diane Klutz, author of the book “ Round Eyes-An American Nurse in Vietnam”. Diane shared her story of her adventures as a member of the Army Nurse Corps during the Vietnam War. Her presetation was at times comical but was always filled with heartwarming compassion. Thank you Diane for serving our country. How fortunate her patients were to have had her as their nurse. On May 10th the program will be a FASHION SHOW presented by Jo Ann’s Chic Boutique Upscale Resale/Retail Store. Eight P.I.E. members will be modeling clothes from Jo Ann’s Store. Make your reservations by noon on Wednesday, May 8th to PIELuncheon@aol. com. For more information call Sheila at 9492702.

Planes, Picnic and Pickling Planned for Airport Open House

When you think of Padre Island, you think of recreation and outdoor activities. The Padre Island Cyclists are a part of that Island culture. The Island weather is conducive to year-around cycling (Well maybe except for the wind sometimes). Padre Island Cyclists can be seen riding around Padre Bali Park, down to the sea wall, down Park Road 22 to the National Seashore, or just around the Padre Isles streets. The Cyclists ride for fun, for exercise, and for camaraderie. Padre Island Cyclists stress safety, along with the fun and exercise. They wear helmets and bright clothing, use lights and mirrors, and obey traffic laws. They would like to ask motorists to watch out for them, and remember that cyclists have just as much right to the road under the law as motor vehicles. If you would like to be part of this action, you can join Padre Island Cycling Club (PICC) at http://

A small group of aviation and airport enthusiasts are organizing an Open House— or rather an “Open Hangar”-- at the Mustang Beach Airport in Port Aransas Saturday April 20th.

This event is open to the public and all visitors to the airport are encouraged to park along Piper Boulevard (the west end of Beach Access 1-A); do not drive your vehicles on the airport among the aircraft. There should be many interesting airplanes to check out and some may even commit random acts of aviation for the crowd; bring your lawn chairs and families and enjoy an afternoon at the airport!

This event is sponsored by Mr. Mark Creighton, Mr. Bryant Gaines, Beaches Café, SkyeView Aviation, Skydive South Texas, Mr. Mark Seaman, A-1 Norm’s Portables, VFW Post 8967, Amelia’s Landing Hotel, Coffee Waves and Coastal Ed’s. Any other businesses or individuals who’d like to lend their support or set up a display/ booth should contact Jason Towns at 361-537-3776.

The fellowship kicks off with a welcome coffee at 9:00AM for what organizers hope to be an armada of private pilots arriving with their birds from around the State. Aviators will then be encouraged to use a discounted rental Golf Cart or the Port A trolley to get out and see the beach or make a visit to the downtown area. For the afternoon, a Shrimp Boil hosted by Beaches Restaurant Owner and Airport Advisory Board member Bob Petitt will begin with plates offered at around $10. The Port Aransas VFW Post #8967 will be selling refreshments throughout the afternoon as well. If the shrimp runs out, all are welcome to bring their own picnic baskets, too!
