Team We are Woodward is Prepared for Takeoff!

By: Terry Ozima – Niles, IL

Years Participating in Plane Pull

Woodward, Inc. is in our second year of pulling!

We Participate Because

Woodward Community Outreach Committee was invited by the Niles, IL police Chief Dennis McEnerney to join them. Woodward of Niles is part of the Airframe Systems Division of Woodward, Inc.; we engineer and manufacture components for the aerospace industry (Boeing 737 and Airbus A300 is among them). It was an easy “buy-in” to form our own team to participate. Our membership was so gung-ho, we had two teams in 2016. It is also the function of the Woodward Community Outreach Committee to partner with local organizations to better our community and the lives of those living within them.

Why we love Plane Pull

We love the camaraderie of Woodward’s membership coming together, supporting a great organization and having FUN doing it!
