Balloons are not Just for Kids!

    It all started when one resident of the Bethel Convalescence Home let the staff know that riding in a hot air balloon was on his bucket list.  A call to RE/MAX Unlimited Real Estate and a hot air balloon event was scheduled.

And then the excitement really started - as more than 50 residents, most in wheel chairs each had their moment in the air.  The process of lifting each resident out of their wheel chair, into a chair placed carefully in the balloon, a 4 minute ride into the air up and down and then a lift back into their wheel chair. And then a small glass of champagne to celebrate an exhilarating moment of freedom! The smiles on resident's face were the reward for all the volunteers who helped the event happen.
