Girls In Aviation Day Houston
Janine K. Iannarelli, Founder & President, Par Avion Ltd. Volunteer for Girls In Aviation Day Houston
Girls In Aviation Day presents a great opportunity for those who are interested in aviation and aerospace to visit Space Center Houston, airport or flight museum, or to study about famous aviators such as Amelia Earhart and Anne Morrow Lindberg (wife of Charles Lindberg who was herself an accomplished aviator) and astronauts such as Sally Ride (the first female astronaut) or Mae Jemison (the first African American Astronaut).
The Houston event is geared to 100 girls ages 10 to 17. Girls will have the opportunity to meet and speak with licensed female pilots; learn about air traffic control, see how an aircraft engine works, learn about aerodynamics and much more. The event will be held at the Lone Star Flight Museum at Ellington Airport. Registration and lunch are complimentary; however, those who are interested are asked to register via the website www.girlsinaviationhouston.com
Child Advocates and the McDonald's Houston Children's Festival
Every 9 minutes, a child in Texas experiences abuse or neglect. Nearly 4,000 children in the Houston area have experienced such life-threatening abuse or neglect that they had to be removed from their homes and placed in foster care. Child Advocates trains everyday people to advocate for the best interests of these children in court so they can find safe, permanent homes as quickly as possible. Ashley Brockette, PR/Marketing talks about how you can support the organization.
