Battle Lake's 'Tribute To Gerry Beck' Returns
Former Organizer Pat Kostelecky Will Also Be Honored Sept. 4
August 1, 2021
The first Saturday in September the community of Battle Lake will welcome the return of an popular aviation event that will honor two special people.
Pat Kostelecky, a driving force behind the Battle Lake Area Community Fund (BLACF) and the "Annual Tribute to Gerry Beck - Gathering of Airplanes," died unexpectedly in November 2019.
"We are going forward," said Kathy Deal, a good friend of Kostelecky's and BLACF member. "This year will feature a tribute to Pat, and the annual tribute to Gerry. We need to do something for her, because she provided the heart and soul of this event."
