MAHOPAC, N.Y. - Mahopac kids had the chance to add a little more fun and magic to their holiday vacations Thursday, Dec. 28, when they attended an Aviation and Magic Workshop with Hobby Quest. The event, sponsored by the town’s Recreation and Parks Department, was held at Sycamore Park. The budding aviators and magicians had the opportunity to build balsa wood helicopters that really flew, as well as learn a slew of magic tricks that they could take home and perform and amaze their family and friends.
