Bartlett kids take flight to North Pole, posted with vodpod

Boys from the Bartlett Campus recently hopped a Delta flight to the North Pole for a visit with Santa Claus!

Each year Delta Airlines invites children from local nonprofit organizations to enjoy a “flight” to the North Pole. This year, kids from Youth Villages, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the Ronald McDonald House all boarded the flight. Several local mascots also made the journey with the kids including Sheldon of the Memphis Riverkings, Rockey the Redbird and the Chik-fil-a Cow, all dressed up for Christmas!

The special guests enjoyed snacks and sang carols while the fantasy flight headed to the North Pole. As their “sleigh” reached the gate, the kids were allowed to open the window shades in time to see Santa waiting on the tarmac for them. Once inside the North Pole gate, they were treated to milk and cookies, face painting and a balloon artist.
