Angel Flight... Santa and Mrs. Claus visited our school!!

This year my school was so lucky. Our school was selected to be the beneficiary of a large collection of school supplies and gifts. Angel Flight made arrangements for delivery and a visit from Santa.

At Christmas, Santa Claus flies with Utah wing of Angel Flight West as part the organization’s annual charitable mission to bring gifts to children at Title I schools in Utah. The primary mission of Angel Flight West is providing transportation to patients who must travel long distances for medical care.

We wait, in a freezing morning, until Santa finally arrived.  He joined the students in an assembly at the school and enjoyed a performance of several holiday songs.

We have some photos here:







 

We can read it in the newspapers and watch it on the tv!

It was GREAT!!! The children were amazed by all the airplanes, the gifts and all the supplies... and, of course, by Santa!!
Thanks a lot to the fifteen volunteer pilots, Eagle Scouts, Angel Flight and everyone who donated something to make these children happier this Christmas.
