There are no shortage of heroes.  That’s why Westerville’s community sponsored Honor Flight will take off again September 30th for Washington D.C. so another group of senior veterans can visit the memorials built in their honor.

Honor Flight Columbus June 2017You can show your appreciation to these heroes for their selfless defense of liberty. Teachers, students and community members are being asked to write letters of thanks to our veterans. These will be distributed during the mail call portion of the trip to Washington, D.C. Correspondence should be sent to Lisa Reschke at
Cherrington Elementary School no later than Monday September 18. Cherrington is located at 522 Cherrington Road in Westerville. Students should sign their letters using only their first
names. Postcards are available as well, by contacting reschkel@westerville.k12.oh.us .

In addition, the entire Westerville community is invited to meet at the John Glenn International Airport at 8:45 p.m. on September 30 to welcome our veterans home. This is a memorable
opportunity for families, scouting organizations, clubs and individuals, all of whom are encouraged to bring flags and signs of support and gratitude for America’s true heroes.

If you are looking for another way to support Honor Flight, take your family to dinner  at City Barbecue on Wednesday, September 27, where a portion of sales from 10:30 a.m. until 10:00 p.m. will be donated to Honor Flight Columbus. Learn more at www.honorflightcolumbus.org.
