The skies over Grande Prairie are set to roar once again as the Grande Prairie Regional Air Show makes a triumphant return after a 19-year absence. Devon Potter, a representative from the event, shared insights into the involvement of the Rotary Clubs in Grande Prairie and what attendees can expect from this highly anticipated spectacle.

"The Rotary Clubs are thrilled to bring back this event, which not only unites the community but also serves as a means to give back to those who have supported us generously over the years," stated Potter, emphasizing the Rotary's pivotal role in resurrecting the air show.

The primary aim behind hosting the event is to raise funds for the D Coy Armories, located on 100th Street, which requires extensive renovations and expansions. Potter highlighted that proceeds from the air show will contribute significantly to these essential improvements.
