Bethesda Lutheran Communities Visit to MAS June 13, 2017

On June 13 2017 Bethesda Lutheran Communities made their third annual visit to MAS flying field.  A great time was had by all!  I was a little preoccupied, so the only pictures I got were group photos at the end.  We hosted 11 Developmentally Disabled young adults and 4 staff members!

A HUGE thanks to members Bob Salmon, Bob Steinberg, Lee Overholt, and Earl Keffer for flying and helping the young adults and to Connie Kerr and Isabelle Kerr for serving lunch!! 

All the young adults and staff members from Bethesda had a fantastic time!  They all had smiles on their faces the whole time they were at the field!  That is what it is all about, those wonderful smiles!

Greg Hight RIP
