Dream Day to Dis­ney World

Le Vortex de Bagotville - - LE MOT DU COMMANDANT -

A group of eight chil­dren from the Ba­got­ville mi­li­ta­ry com­mu­ni­ty took part in the Dreams Take Flight pro­ject from Oc­to­ber 31th to No­vem­ber 2nd.

In col­la­bo­ra­tion with Ca­na­dian or­ga­ni­za­tions and com­mu­ni­ty groups, Dreams Take Flight helps di­sad­van­ta­ged and di­sa­bled chil­dren live an un­for­get­table day. In recent years, the or­ga­ni­za­tion has re­ser­ved a num­ber of places for mi­li­ta­ry chil­dren. The cho­sen chil­dren fly to a Dis­ney park in Flo­ri­da to spend a whole day en­ter­tai­ning and mar­ve­ling, with all ex­penses paid. Be­fore their de­par­ture for Dis­ney, the chil­dren are wel­co­med in an Air Ca­na­da han­gar at the Mon­treal air­port where a big par­ty awaits them. 3 Wing Ba­got­ville col­la­bo­ra­ted in this ac­ti­vi­ty by sen­ding a CF- 18 figh­ter air­craft and a Grif­fon he­li­cop­ter. Even if the trip is fast and the chil­dren sleep ve­ry lit­tle, you can see the joy on their faces when they re­turn from a ma­gi­cal trip to Dis­ney World. Cap­tain Be­noît- Mar­cel La­lan­cette, Chief of Staff to the Com­man­der of 3 Wing and CFB Ba­got­ville, ac­com­pa­nied the chil­dren du­ring the trip. He says the kids were ve­ry ex­ci­ted about the trip.
