Team Fastrax and Start Skydiving will start off the 2014 season by giving back to the City of Middletown. Keep Middletown Beautiful is hosting an Earth Day event at the Cincinnati State campus in downtown Middletown on Saturday April 12th.

We are looking for volunteers to help with trash pick up and potentially painting and mulching. The event starts at 8am and run till 2pm. I know its the beginning of season and a busy weekend at the drop zone, so I am requesting that we at least help till noon.

Please RSVP to Amy Fillion at amyfillion83@gmail.com and fill out this waiver prior.

This is a family friendly event, so bring out the kids. Lets show Middletown how thankful we are to be jumping at Smith Park by cleaning it up!

  1. Do you have pilots courses or know of a place in the area where I might attain one.
