Theresa gets her wish to fly over Susie Lake in a helicopter

For as long as she can remember, Theresa wanted to know what her childhood camp in Susie Lake looked like from the sky so she could see if the Bluff was as big as she believed it to be when she was a child. When describing her wish she said “As I boarded the helicopter I was a little nervous because I had never been a co pilot before. As we flew over Susie Lake I could picture my Father dropping us off on the bluff with the big basket that had to be filled with blueberries. Then I could see my 5 sisters and I sliding down the bluff and going in the lake for a swim. This experience brought back so many good memories. I can’t thank my daughter enough for arranging this wish and the WAY Association for granting it. I will never forget this trip.” Picturing herself picking blueberries for blueberry pies from the sky is something Theresa will never forget. A special thanks to our friends at Vision Air for helping make this wish come true.
