While working directly for Cole, Jim spent a few winters at Cole's shop in Del Ray Beach, FL. There, he assisted with aircraft projects during the off season to bring back to Rhinebeck when flying weather returned to the Northeast.
This plaque is placed here to dedicate the announcer's tower to Jim Hare, where he was best known and most appreciated by Aerodrome visitors.
