       Cat’s Meow Commemorative of The Base Now Available

HEATH – The major tenants located on the Base Campus of the Central 
Ohio Aerospace and Technology Center in Heath have joined forces to 
help the United Way meet its annual fundraising goals.  Boeing, 
Bionetics, BAE Systems, the Heath Rec Center, and the Port Authority 
are currently underway with a campaign to take advance orders for a 
limited edition Cat’s Meow commemorative featuring The Base.  Others 
with long-time ties to the Base are also partners in the campaign, 
including the Licking County chapter of the National Association of 
Retired Federal Employees (NARFE) and the Hopewell Federal Credit 

Orders can be taken by representatives of all participating 
organizations.  All net proceeds from the sale of the pieces will 
benefit the Licking County United Way.  A portion of every purchase 
is tax deductible.

The eight inch by three and one half inch wooden commemoratives 
depict a perspective view of the West Side of the Base and sell for 
$20 each.  Advance orders are required.  The campaign will close 
October 22 so that all orders can be received before Christmas.

Information and an order form can be found online at
