We are excited to have invited our DUSTOFF Paramedic Students who are attending the Flight Paramedic Course at the University of Texas Health Science Center. We are asking our members who are willing and able to sponsor one or two of these great DUSTOFF Warriors for the evening. If you can and will, simply let us know how many on the registration form and we’ll add the price of their meal to your bill. They will be invited to sit at your table, where they can meet and get to know some of those whose legacy they are fulfilling in the careers. Let’s make them feel welcome and encourage them to join our Association.

The ever-popular hospitality suite will be open on Friday and Saturday afternoons and evenings. Margaritas will flow! We will enjoy the Seventh-Floor Skyline Atrium again this year for a spacious event. And, as always, Karen “Hugz” Hill will be selling our store items and passing out hugs. We have some new items to sell this year and are moving out old inventory at reduced prices.

Sunday will see our annual Memorial Service, where we honor those who have closed out their flight plans in the last year. We’ll then depart and start making plans for next year.
