Because of the airport’s growth, a much larger and newer facility that reflected the economic health and vitality of the area was needed. The former airport terminal building at the entrance of Geurink Boulevard has served its purpose and is scheduled for demolition the end of November or early December. The ranch house was built by Bernie and Jerene Lemmen in the mid 50’s and became the airport terminal in 1976.
