Mendenhall Flying Lions thanks Juneau community

Thank You letters for Jan. 13, 2019.

The Mendenhall Flying Lions would like to thank everyone in Juneau who supported our efforts this year in raising funds for the Children’s Tumor Foundation, Lions Club Vision Screening and the donations to Juneau nonprofits.

Our annual Light Flights were again a big success. Our gratitude goes to Coastal Helicopters, their staff and pilots, Coastal Transport and Petro Marine for the fuel and Shriner Craig Bumpus for making sure Santa arrived to delight all the children.

Mendenhall Flying Lions would like to thank everyone in Juneau and the volunteers that supported us in making this event a rousing success.

Kiara Alexander on behalf of the Juneau Mendenhall Flying Lions
