We couldn’t have asked for better weather for our Planes & Puppies Young Eagles Rally on October 9th. It was a beautifully sunny and warm morning. Daniela Knoll, Young Eagles Coordinator, reported that we had 6 volunteer pilots who gave rides to 26 kids. The new Build and Fly program was represented at the event. Our chapter, along with the Chain O Lakes Eagles RC Club, had RC airplanes and flight simulators available for the kids to check out. Unfortunately, the animal shelter was not able to attend this year, but thankfully our four-legged friends were represented by the many attendees who brought their puppies and dogs. Thank you to everyone who came, to the many volunteers that made it a successful and enjoyable event, and to everyone who donated to the shelter.
