Though cloud cover threatened to rain out the Sandy Kiwanis 60th Annual Fly-In Cruise-In, and the group experienced some turbulence after a pilot crash landed into McKinnon Airpark, hundreds turned out to enjoy the event on Sunday, July 23.

"It definitely takes a team to pull off that event," she added. She was also happy to select a 1967 Ford Bronco to receive the President's Award this year, and to have more kid-friendly events included among the car show, such as a face painter.
