First Flight Society Celebrates National Tourism Day

The First Flight Society would like to thank everyone who came by to visit our booth on Thursday, May 10th. FFS participated in National Tourism Day at the North Carolina Welcome Center on southbound I-95 near Roanoke Rapids. Perry White and Mike Fonseca had the chance to meet and talk with some of the hundreds of people that came to visit the displays from 10:00 until 2:00 on a beautiful, slightly windy May afternoon.

National Tourism Day is celebrated during National Travel and Tourism week, which is the first full week of May. This is the 35th anniversary observation of NTTW that was created by congress in 1983. In North Carolina this year’s theme was “Travel Then and Now”. This gave the FFS the opportunity to answer questions and supply information about the First Flight Society and the Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kill Devil Hills.
