By Audrey Cooney

Sparky checked off yet another bucket list item when he got to ride in Alaska’s Helo-2 search and rescue helicopter. Purchased in 2013, Helo-2 helps Alaska State Troopers cover the state’s vast expanses that would otherwise be inaccessible.

Sparky turned 65 on March 18, 2016, and we have been pulling out all the stops to help him celebrate! He’s created a bucket list of 65 activities and events he’d like to accomplish from now through October. As he checks them off his list, we’ll make sure to share them with you. Some of Sparky’s wishes are pretty lofty, while others are just fun or a bit silly. Check in weekly to see where he goes and what he’s up to!
