Tenth anniversary of local involvement with Dreams Take Flight tonight


The Mohawk Council of Kahnawà:ke (MCK) is pleased to announce that four Kahnawà:ke children will be visiting Walt Disney World courtesy of Air Canada’s ‘Dreams Take Flight’ program.

The kids will fly to Orlando, Florida, aboard a special Air Canada flight along with approximately 175 other children. The flight will leave Montreal during the wee hours tonight and will arrive early tomorrow morning. As always, several MCK staff, including Chiefs Kahsennenhawe Sky-Deer and Gina Deer, are volunteering to accompany the kids to the Air Canada Technical Center at Trudeau Airport to send them off.

The MCK has been involved in Dreams Take Flight since 2004. Children are selected by Kahnawake Shakotiia’takehnhas Community Services (KSCS) based on requirements and standards set by the Dreams Take Flight organization.

“This year marks the tenth anniversary of Kahnawà:ke’s participation in this wonderful program,” said Ken Bourque. Mr. Bourque is an MCK employee and former Air Canada employee who has been instrumental in getting the MCK involved. “I’d like to extend a warm ‘niá:wen’ to Dream Takes Flight and its sponsors, the MCK, KSCS, and the Kahnawake Peacekeepers who assist us in making this special day possible. And, to the four children from Kahnawà:ke participating in tonight’s flight: we are proud to help assist you on your trip of a lifetime.”

Dreams Take Flight is volunteer-based charitable organization dedicated to providing a magical experience to socially, intellectually and physically challenged children in eight Canadian cities. The volunteer team is dedicated to providing a special day to the children. This day is ‘all about them’ and the wonderful experience that a day in Disney World can provide. The Montreal chapter has been in operation for nineteen years. There is no cost to the children or their families.

The group is expected to return late tomorrow (Wednesday) evening.
