92 Year Old Resident Will Fly For The First Time!

Chestertown, Maryland, August 3, 2011 — Mrs. Lillian Hynson, a 92 year old resident of the Chester River Manor Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, will take her maiden airplane flight on Friday, August 5 at 11:00am, at the Bay Bridge Airport in Stevensville!

As part of the “Living Life Wish List,” a program at the Chester River Manor Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, funded by the Chester River Health Foundation, Mrs. Lillian Hynson, will make her life-long dream of flying a reality. The “Living Life Wish List” program is paying for her 40 minute  flight above the beautiful Chesapeake Bay and Kent Island area, located in Queen Anne’s County Maryland.

Mrs. Hynson, who was born and raised in Sudlersville, Maryland, says that she always wanted to fly somewhere, but never had the opportunity to travel by air. That will all change on August 5 at 11:00am—weather permitting—when Mrs. Hynson will board a four-passenger Trident Air airplane at the Bay Bridge Airport.  Mrs. Hynson’s sister, Jean Jeter, and other family members will be present to watch the flight.

When asked if she was nervous, Mrs. Lillian Hynson commented “I am not nervous at all, just so excited about my morning plane ride.” Mrs. Hynson has been a resident at The Manor since September 2008.

Chester River Manor Nursing & Rehabilitation Center, part of the Chester River Health System and affiliated with University of Maryland Medical System, is a 98-bed Medicare-and Medicaid-certified facility dedicated to providing 24-hour long-term care and rehabilitation services to residents and patients across the Upper Eastern Shore region.
