hanks to the Soar with Reading program, this summer children in Fort Lauderdale have access to the coolest vending machines around. Instead of snacks, they are selecting new, free books like the Magic Tree House series. Random House Children’s Books authors and illustrators – Mary Pope Osborne (Magic Tree House series), Judd Winick (Hilo series), R. J. Palacio (Wonder), Chris Grabenstein (Mr. Lemoncello’s Library series), Christian Robinson (Little Penguins) – are supporting the program throughout the summer by encouraging voting in this year’s #BookBattle which is currently underway.
Congratulations to Fort Lauderdale, winner of our recent Green City Vote! South Florida customers, crewmembers and community members outvoted those in San Francisco, San Juan and Washington, DC for a new green space which will be built in 2018 with a grant from JetBlue.
We expressed our gratitude to a number of crewmember veterans, special invited guests and other veteran supporters with a special flight on our Vets in Blue aircraft which is dedicated to service members. The flight departed JFK for Dayton, Ohio for a trip to the National Museum of the U.S. Air Force (NMUSAF).
