Thomas William Panting (WWII Veteran)
— RCAF — Tail Gunner for a Lancaster Bomber)
—  born on 25 August 1925 in Winnipeg. He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force in 1943, trained as a gunner, and served in Canada and England with 106 Squadron Metheringham and 630 Squadron East Kirby.
He went on 24 bombing missions over Germany, France, East Prussia, Norway, Holland and also to Heimbach Dam in Germany.
On 13 January 1945, Thomas and his crew were flying to Stettin, Germany when an engine caught fire. The crew had to parachute out. Thomas was the second-last to jump, followed by the pilot. The crewmate before him jumped, but tragically rolled directly into a running engine. Thomas remained where he was standing, frozen from the sight. The pilot, behind him, booted Thomas so hard that he fell a safe distance from the plane. They landed in Sweden where they were interned for two months before returning to England on 19 March 1945. Thomas was discharged with the rank of Warrant Officer-2 and was awarded the 1939-1945 Star, the France & Germany Star, Defence Medal, Canadian Volunteer Service Medal and the 1939-1945 War Medal. Thomas William Panting is a member of the Transcona Legion and has been for over 35 years. Also recently was awarded the 75th Anniversary World War II pin.

NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM

Secret of the Tomb (2014)

On April 17th at  7pm 

 At the Museum of Natural History, there’s new exhibit being unveiled. Larry Daley who manages the night exhibit because the exhibits come to life because of the Tablet of Ahkmenrah, is in charge of the presentation. But when the exhibits go wild, Larry finds himself in trouble. He learns that the Tablet is corroding so he does some research and learns that Cecil, the former museum guard was at the site when the Tablet was discovered. He tells Larry that they were warned that if they remove it could mean the end. Larry realizes it means the end of magic. He talks to Ahkmenrah who says that he doesn’t know anything. Only his father the Pharoah knows the Tablet’s secrets. He learns that the Pharoah was sent to the London museum. So he convinces, Dr. McPhee the museum curator to help send him to London. He goes and takes Ahkmenrah with him but some of the others like Teddy Roosevelt, Attila, Octavius, and Jedediah come with him.  Larry spans the globe, uniting favorite and new characters while embarking on an epic quest to save the magic before it is gone forever.
