AVP’s Wheel Life Experiences will be a family-friendly event hosted by the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton International Airport, and on July 10, 2021, the inaugural event will take place at the Airport from 9:00 AM to 2:00 PM rain or shine! This event is for children, where they will be able to experience all types of vehicles, including air transportation, construction, public service, emergency, utility, landscaping, delivery, and many more. Children will be able to get in the driver’s seat of their favorite vehicles, learn about those vehicles, and have a “Wheel” Life Experience like adults get to do on a regular basis, as well as see and talk to the men and women who serve and protect our community.
Net proceeds from the event will benefit the Pittston Twp. Police Department’s K-9 Unit, and their willingness to have a 2nd K-9 join their police force! The Pittston Twp. Police Department’s K-9 Unit responds to assist officers in the field when necessary. The K-9 Unit is also deployed upon calls for assistance with other local, state and federal agencies. The K-9 Team is used for a wide array of tasks, which include drug detection, locating fleeing suspects, missing persons, searching homes and buildings, and search and rescue.
