The annual Larry T. Neal Memorial Fish Fry at the Slaton Municipal Airport, benefitting the Slaton Lions Club scholarship fund, had many surprises Friday evening (June 19), including a surprise downpour.
For the Neal family however, it was not the surprise storm while taking a group photo.
It was the airport is now called the City of Slaton Larry T. Neal Memorial Airport.
The change in name, complete with a new sign, was announced officially at the event.
The metal sign features a plane with Neal’s birth year and initials – 46LT as the N-number.
