On Dec. 18, Coastal Helicopters, their employees and pilots, Coastal Fuel, Petro Marine Services and the Mendenhall Flying Lions Club again provided helicopter tours of the Christmas lights of the Mendenhall Valley. In the three-hour project, we were able to take more than 180 people up for a fantastic view of the lights.
We would like to thank KSUP, KINY TAKU 105, KJNO, KTOO and their DJs for their support in promoting the event. We appreciate the patience shown by those who stood in line to fly with us. We were told by many that it was worth the wait.
Special thanks also go to the residents of the Mendenhall Valley for turning on their lights that night.
Funds raised in this project were designated for the Children's Tumor Foundation and the Lions' sight projects.
The Mendenhall Flying Lions Club would like to express its appreciation to Coastal Helicopters and their employees, Coastal Fuel and Petro Marine Services for their continuing support of the community.
President, Mendenhall Flying Lions Club
