THANK YOU to everyone who supported our first Old Glory Honor Flight Pulling for Honor event Saturday! Together we raised $75,398, with donations still coming in – enough to send a group of veterans to Washington D.C. to visit the memorials built in their honor. Another huge thank you to our pulling teams. We had 12 full 12-foot pulls. Team RamRod took first place with a pull of 12.03 seconds!

Attention Allegiant travelers: Due to Hurricane Irma, flights to and from Sandford/Orlando and Tampa/St. Pete, Florida may be delayed, diverted or cancelled now through Monday, Sept. 11. If you have a reservation, you can make a one-time change to your flight free of charge. Find more information here: http://bit.ly/2vLW3rC. In addition, the Allegiant ticket counter at Appleton Airport will be open 9 a.m.-6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 7 to assist customers wishing to make a change. Best times for in-person service are 9-11 a.m. and 4:30-6 p.m. From 11 a.m-4:30 p.m., the regularly scheduled Allegiant flights are checking in, and there may be a bit of a wait (but we’ll still be able to help with changes).
