Flight of Dreams fly-in offers fun for you, toys for kids | Events
Head to Mineola this weekend for a fun event for your whole family!
The 2nd annual Flight of Dreams fly-in will be a fun event for all who like to watch R/C pilots do breathtaking aerial demonstrations. The fun begins at 11:00am and lasts until 3pm, weather permitting. Bundle up to keep warm, as the weather forecast looks like a wintry day on Saturday. Pilots will still fly unless rain/high winds roll in.
Bring your chair, a thermos of hot chocolate and bundle up so you can
Entry fee for piilots and for the general public is a new, unopened toy or monetary donation for the following charities which are working to provide Christmas for children right here in East Texas who wouldn't have a gift under the tree without help from one of these great organizations:
The Rainbow Room of Wood County - This charity exists to supply children who are in the foster care system in Wood County with clothes and toys. Often, these children are removed from their home quickly, for their own safety, and don't have their possessions with them. This is a great way to bring comfort and fun to kids in stressful life situations.
Salvation Army Angel Tree: The Angel Tree exists specifically to bring Christmas to children in East Texas who would not have one, otherwise. Not only are toys needed, but clothing is sometimes requested, so monetary donations will be welcome, as well as toys.
Toys for Tots: This longtime outreach by the Marine Corps Reserve also exists to bring Christmas to children whose parents cannot afford to buy them gifts for Christmas.
In the event inclement weather cancels the event, please contact the above organizations to donate!
Rainbow Room of Wood County: contact Janae at 903-638-9407.
Salvation Army Angel Tree: contact Chantel at 903.592.4361
Toys for Tots: Donate at the website here.
