Dare To Dream – Charming

Charming always wanted to take a ride on a helicopter.  She had a brother in the Navy who flew them and Charming and her late husband had plans that fell through at one point.  Charming mentioned her dream to Jessica one day at Glenwood Place Assisted Living and the wheels got in motion to make it happen.    A ride was set up through Iowa Helicopter and on June 26th Charming, her daughter Judy and son-in-law Mike took a 30 minute flight around Des Moines.  Charming said “I never thought I would be able to take one, I had given up on it” when discussing the ride.  After the ride she said “I was surprised at how much water was on the ground” and “That is a day I will always remember”.  Glenwood Place has a Dare to Dream program which helps make dreams come true for its residents.  Glenwood Place conducts two or Three Dare to Dream requests every year.
