The annual HSW Toys for Tots event was held on Saturday, Dec 5 in the main hangar. Thanks to the generous donations of members and visitors, we once more filled the trailer with toys for area kids.
Santa arrived right on time in the C-45, explaining to the kids that the HSW loaned him the use of the airplane because without snow he couldn’t use his sled. (I sure hope it snows on Christmas, Santa).
“Buffy” Cooper and Brent “I didn’t know the camera was on me” Collins prep for the judges.
“The Chili’s ready”
Lauri Skinner, Tresa Bolin and Carol Gillett help to fill the trailer.
Thanks to Randy Skinner for providing the huge Santa.
