The youth from the Boys and Girls Clubs of Lompoc rose to the challenge to create their visions for a healthy and fun life on the side a Cessna 182 today at the Santa Ynez Airport. Over 800 guests came to view a variety of aircraft and demonstrations, listen to presentations by experts, and enjoy hamburgers and hotdogs generously provided by the event sponsors in the sunshine that characterizes this terrific airport. Our friends at Above All Aviation Flight School and EAA members provided free plane rides to children 8-17.
The public was invited to paint the other side of the Cessna and they enjoyed themselves… even the little ones. Our hope is that everyone who picked up a paintbrush or gave one to their child got the message: young brains are highly susceptible to the disease of addiction caused by early exposure to alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs.
