Invitation JCI Staines Memorial – London

45 years ago, on June 18 1972, a plane crashed near London, known as the Staines air disaster. A tragic accident, where also 9 JCI friends died, coming back from the European Conference in Edinburgh.
This year the JCI Staines Foundation likes to be present with a large delegation, to honour our bond with the victims and their families. We welcome all members of JCI Belgium, JCI Senate Belgium, JCI SenSe, JCI London and JCI Edinburgh, together with the entire international JCI community.
