The excitement of Christmas came early for the students of Centennial Elementary in Roosevelt. Santa Flight Utah chose the school for their mission this year to brighten the holiday for deserving kids and they arrived in Roosevelt on Friday in style. 35 airplanes flown by the volunteer pilots of Angel Flight West arrived at the Roosevelt airport with loads of school supplies, coats, and toys. The items were loaded into a giant semi truck and were transported to the throngs of cheering students waiting at the school, arriving along with Santa and Mrs. Clause who came in their helicopter. During a special school assembly, Angel Flight West wing leader Steve Bollinger explained that the organization provides free flights for medical patients needing transportation for appointments but once a year they also take on the special mission of the Santa Flight. Wasatch Front scout groups collected much of the supplies and toys and then the pilots donated their time, fuel, and flight to get the goods to the excited kids at Centennial. The organization also presented the school with about $3,000 dollars in cash donations during the assembly. The excitement of every child was clear and their energy was contagious.
