It’s so nice to fill my mind and my calendar with plans for an amazing summer! It seems like we will get the summer we have been looking forward to for over a year now. As restrictions ease, people get vaccinated and the weather warms up…the people of the New York Metropolitan area are ready to get out and have a great time.

While there may still be some apprehension to head overseas for that summer odyssey, the opportunities to stay-cation in our area are really looking up! Whatever you choose to do, I hope you have a great time with your friends and family and enjoy the warm weather, relax and recharge. 

As we get into Summer, the Metropolitan Airport News is preparing for our July issue Giving Campaign. Since 2017, we have donated over $38,000 to local aviation and military focused organizations. We have once again selected the USO of Metropolitan New York as the July issue beneficiary. Since we started our support of the USO, we have donated more than $23,000 to them with the help of our amazing supporters and advertisers. We feel very strongly about their mission, The USO strengthens America’s military service members by keeping them connected to family, home and country, throughout their service to the nation. We must remember that we them and they need us! The USO of Metropolitan NY has centers at JFK, EWR, Fort Hamilton and Times Square serving active and retired service members and their families. They are a volunteer organization and can use any help we can get to them.

A Full page color advertising in the July issue supporting the USO is $600. The USO will receive $100 per Ad! It’s a great opportunity to get your company name out there and support a worthy organization at the same time.

Enjoy the June issue and I hope you find some fun ideas on where to head out to for a day or a long weekend. Thank you in advance for your support of the Metropolitan Airport News and the USO of Metropolitan New York Giving Campaign.
