Some kids reach for the Sky and land on their own two feet.
Earlier this morning, as I was coming out of Dan and Whit's with a coffee and doughnut (don't tell my doctor), I noticed a Lemonade stand and stopped to ask if I could trade my coffee in for a lemonade. When no one responded, I decided to purchase a lemonade for $ 1.00 and asked what this fundraiser was for. I was very surprised to hear that it supports the World War II Airborne demonstration team.
They are a registered 501 c 3 not for profit foundation Ein # 043679356
Their contact phone # is 580-335-3344 and here is their web site
I asked the Lemonade stand proprietors if I could speak with their parents to get their permission to do the story and use the photos. I spoke with the parents who gave me the green light for the story.
One of the goals of this program is to teach kids how to safely jump out of a C47 Airplane.
see the C47 you tube video which explains the purpose of this aircraft.
Tyler Odell has supplied this video that shows these kids actually jumping out of a perfectly good aircraft.
I ask Why? and was told why not.
I commend them for their accomplishments and hope that the stand does well and helps them achieve their goals.
Remember,Honor and Serve (What a great idea)
