'On Benevolent Wings': Fonthill Resident donates aircraft to Canadore College

Ken and Beverly Byberg have taken the turbulence out of aircraft donations when they turned over their 1974 Piper Seneca twin-engine aircraft to the North Bay Canadore College School of Aviation recently. It’s not often someone donates an airplane to a school, but the Bybergs, owners of Island 10 fishing lodge on Lady Evelyn Lake, have done just that as a means to give back to the aviation industry. The aircraft is valued at $100,000. Canadore College has been a leader in Canadian aviation training for over 40 years.

Thank you to Liz Palmieri of the Niagara Community Foundation for bring this local story to our attention. The Bybergs are also donating five days of fishing for two (all inclusive) at their northern Ontario fishing camp – Island 10 –  (approx. Value $3,500) as a prize at a local golf tournament that raises funds in support of the granting programs of the Niagara Community Foundation. Next week we'll be posting more details about the golf tournament and this generous gift. Stay tuned....
