Allendale Community Residents visit Aviation Hall Of Fame and Museum of New Jersey

RESIDENTS FROM THE ALLENDALE COMMUNITY FOR SENIOR LIVING VISIT THE AVIATION HALL OF FAME & MUSEUM OF NEW JERSEY

ALLENDALE, N.J., Dec. 3, 2013 – Staff members and residents from The Allendale Community for Senior Living recently enjoyed a fun and educational day at The Aviation Hall of Fame & Museum of New Jersey. The residents had an opportunity to view historic aircraft, air and space artifacts, photographs, fine art and an extensive model collection. Located at Teterboro Airport, the museum is dedicated to the preservation of the Garden State’s distinguished aviation and space heritage. The visit was particularly exciting for 99-year-old Allendale Community resident and aviation enthusiast Arthur DiStasi, pictured alongside his daughter, Linda Schweighardt. DiStasi’s 1935 flight school graduation photo is among the historic photographs enshrined in the Hall of Fame. An avid flyer who became fascinated with flight at a young age, DiStasi is retired from a 70-plus year career as a senior design and skills engineer in the aeronautics industry. At the age of 94, DiStasi even learned to fly a helicopter for the first time.

The Allendale Community for Senior Living, located at 85 Harreton Rd., in Allendale, is conveniently accessed via private driveway off of Route 17 South.
