Serve Daily - - FRONT PAGE - By Becca Bag­ga­ley for Serve Daily

The Ber­lin Candy Bomber, Gail S. Halvorsen, has been busy drop­ping “Candy Bombs” to raise money for the new Civil Air Pa­trol’s Gail Halvorsen Avi­a­tion Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­ter. He will be meet­ing friends new and old and drop­ping “Candy Bombs” at the Span­ish Fork Air­port (2050 N. 300 W.) at 10 a.m. on Satur­day, July 7. The event is be­ing held to raise aware­ness for our goal to build the Gail S Halvorsen Avi­a­tion Ed­u­ca­tion Cen­ter.

Come and bring the fam­ily (and camp chairs to sit on) and join us for the pre- show en­ter­tain­ment at 9:15, fol­lowed by the candy drop by Gail at 10:00 am. Af­ter­ward, de­pend­ing on how our fa­vorite 97 1/2-year-old is feel­ing, there will be an op­por­tu­nity to meet Gail and have your pic­ture taken with him.
