How do you get, and keep, the attention of an entire elementary school full of children. One way is to arrive with a balloon.
That’s what Kevin and Amy Poeppleman did recently. The couple are hot air balloon pilots, Kevin Poeppleman has been a balloon pilot for REMAX for 30 years.
Their visit was arranged by Nadine Blakely, a REMAX agent in the Forest area. Blakely has had a child at Thomas Jefferson Elementary School since it first opened. Her youngest starts middle school in the fall.
