Thank you to our amazing sponsors and volunteers!!
This day would not have been possible without all of you being so generous with your time and support.
Thanks to you we were able to host 56 girls, their parents/Girl Scout Leaders and over 25 volunteers.
It started with an amazing breakfast from Central San - coffee, hot chocolate, muffins, bananas, apples, oranges and more! What a spread! While Beth and Evelyn checked in all of the girls!
Water and Juice boxes courtesy of West Valley Flying Club.
Plus 24 pizzas, 9 salads, and more drinks for lunch thanks to United Airlines!
And don't forget the delicious fruit that was the first thing to vanish - Thank you Monina!
With a special treat of Aircraft Cookies from Rosann, Mary and Lynn!
The girls participated in 6 hands on activities:
The girls also had an amazing time exploring 3 planes and a Coast Guard Search and Rescue Helicopter. Thank you DeWitt, Janica, Denese, and Coast Guard CDR Kelly Higgins and her crew for allowing the girls to explore your aircraft! It was the highlight of their day!
