Mount Pocono Rotary Community Aviation Day

Up, up and away at this year's Mount Pocono Rotary Community Aviation Day!

On May 30th, the Annual Mount Pocono Rotary Community Aviation Day event was held at the Pocono Mountains Airport with proceeds benefiting Make-A-Wish® Greater Pennsylvania and West Virginia.  The event featured helicopter and plane rides, antique car display, a pancake breakfast, children's activities and entertainment provided by The Dance Center.  Mount Pocono Rotary recently presented Make-A-Wish® with a donation of $8,000, to fund the wishes of two children from the Pocono region. Thank you to the Mount Pocono Rotary Club for spreading the magic to children with life-threatening medical conditions.
