On Saturday, September 14th, members of the high school band had the privilege of performing patriotic music during the Ageless Aviation Dreams Foundation event at the McCook Ben Nelson Regional Airport. The event was coordinated by Brookdale Senior Living, who brought in the Ageless Aviation group. Ageless Aviation is a non-profit organization who gives back to senior military veterans living in care homes. They take the residents on a "Dream Flight" in a World War II trainer plane, where they get to ride in the cockpit while the Ageless Aviation pilot drives the plane. Our band played for the residents and their families after lunch and while one resident was being taken up in the aircraft. It was a very emotional and wonderful day for the residents, their families, and everyone who attended.
