Charles M. Schulz – Sonoma County Airport

Charles M. Schulz - Sonoma County Airport by Nancy Terhaar

In March of 2000, the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors voted to change the Sonoma County Airport’s name to Charles M. Schulz – Sonoma County Airport. This airport is located at Santa Rosa, CA. The name change was in honor of the famous “Peanuts” comic strip cartoonist who lived for many years in Sonoma County, leaving a lasting legacy with his beloved characters’ whimsical antics. Mr. Schulz and his family have made many positive contributions to Sonoma County including the Snoopy Home Ice Arena and Charles M. Schulz Museum.

In 2011, my husband, Ron, and our friend, Frank Fitzgerald, flew in their homebuilt airplane, RV-816RF, to Santa Rosa for some business that Frank had there. Ron came home wearing a t-shirt he bought at the Charles M. Schulz – Sonoma County Airport, and that gave me the inspiration for this hooked postcard.
