All women involved in the aviation community are invited to be a part of the annual WAI Connect Breakfast, kicking the day off in EAA's Nature Center Pavilion at 8 a.m. Activities then move out to the AirVenture grounds with the annual group photo on the Plaza at 11 a.m., followed by the WomenVenture Power Lunch at Theater in the Woods at 11:30 a.m. (Pre-registration for breakfast and lunch is required. Visit for breakfast and for lunch.)

Debbie was featured on the cover of the March/April 2014 issue of Aviation for Women. As in the past, limited-edition WomenVenture T-shirts will be available to all women who participate in the photo (while supplies last). Shirts can be picked up at the EAA Welcome Center, the WAI booth, or the Ninety-Nines booth beginning Monday, July 28.
