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: 

Dave Hayward – As members of the Galaxy Council, I believe it’s safe to say that we all have an attraction to airplanes but, did your appreciation of aircraft begin as early as the 5th grade?  Well, Dave Hayward’s did.  It all began when he went to his local library and found an 8mm film canister containing film taken during the attack on Pearl Harbor.  Dave was fascinated by the deadly but beautiful Japanese aircraft.  In 2008, Dave was  attending an air show at NAS Oceania, Virginia Beach, Dave met Galaxy member Don Ferrell.  Don told Dave about the Galaxy Council and its involvement at Westover.  The rest is history.  Dave joined the Galaxy Council after an air show breakfast and has been an active member ever since.  Despite living in Ashland, Massachusetts, Dave has attended and supported every Galaxy function.  Dave is employed as a computer programmer managing software for Meditech specializing in hospital emergency room operation. In addition to spending a great deal of time as a photographer, he also maintains his website where aircraft lovers can purchase pictures taken by Dave at various air shows around the country.  Finally, while proud of the quality of his photography, Dave is more proud of his niece, actress Kara Hayward.  14 year old Kara has co starred in the movie Moonrise Kingdom with Bill Murray and Bruce Willis.  The movie was released in May, 2012.  Finally, thanks Dave for your commitment to the Galaxy Council, you have been a great addition.
