Galaxy Council Member of the Month
Member of the Month – Each month the Galaxy Community Council profiles one of its members. This month’s member is: John Harrington
John Harrington – Although he was raised in Boston, John Harrington and his twin sister Michelle were born at the Westover Air Force Base Infirmary while his father was assigned to Westover AFB as Commander, Naval Air Squadron VR-6. John returned to western Mass to attend Westfield State College for his undergraduate degree and subsequent master’s degrees from AIC and UMass. A real estate broker with ERA Laplante Real Estate in South Hadley, John finds time to fly his own plane, a 1958 classic Cessna 172 that he keeps at Barnes airport in Westfield. John is especially proud of his son John who is currently a member of the U. S. Air Force assigned to a B2 Bomber squadron at Whiteman AFB, Missouri. Although he has only been a member of the Galaxy Council since January, 2012, John has made an impression on President Bud Shuback. Bud stated “the job that John did organizing, locating and getting the World War II veterans to the air show was outstanding. If we had a Rookie of the Year award John would be this year’s winner”! It’s people like John Harrington that make the Galaxy Community Council such a great organization. John, thank you for your service.
