The Gift that Keeps On Giving

Museum of Flight

Thanks to Bonnie Dunbar and Anne Simpson, we gave one lucky winner an annual membership to the Museum of Flight at our December 5th Fly It Forward Event

ANNIKA, our Astronaut was that winner.

This week I received a "Thank You" from Annika's mom, Lisa Sturgeon.


Hi Karlene,

Thank you so much for the wonderful surprise that Annika received in the mail!  A membership to the Museum of Flight - how awesome!!
She was so excited!  I took her to the Museum over the winter break and turned in the paperwork for the membership and our whole family wants to send you and Bonnie a huge THANK YOU!
We love the MOF and will be spending a lot of time there in 2011.  My son Tommy was quite impressed by Annika's adventure in the sky and her big win.  I'm sending you a photo of them 
proudly showing off their new Aerocar membership cards.  :) 
Annika and I had such a wonderful flight with Peter on December 5 and Annika keeps telling everyone about it, even a month after it happened.  Thank you again for arranging such a fun event and for 
empowering girls to become strong women!
Lisa Sturgeon 

This is the kind of gift we love to give-- one that keeps on giving, inspiring, and creates everlasting smiles.  I expect to see Annika attending Aviation High School "in its new home" at the museum of flight in a few years.  

Enjoy the Journey!
