I am still anxiously awaiting the College Point Airship Park. I went on a blimp ride in Las Vegas when I was there last and it was the most exciting ride I ever took. It is an entirely different perspective watching the panorama from the airship. The tourists would love them!

Congratulations to Eric McIntyre who made his Communion and looked very handsome in his black suit and red tie. He was also very proud to be chosen to bring up one of the gifts. Of course his brother Brian can’t wait for his turn to come.
