Next Rotary "Honor Flight" from York, PA, October 2015
The Rotary Club of York, PA is proud to be the only Rotary Club designated as a "hub" for the National Honor Flight (NHF). NHF was founded to give veterans of World War II and the Korean Conflict an opportunity to make the pilgrimage to Washington, D.C. to visit their memorial and witness the Changing of the Guard at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery.It is a special day which generally includes a motorcycle honor guard and a greeting by our national representatives.
Please help us honor our WW II and Korean War Veterans. We need your help to locate and invite our veterans to share in this special day.
Please identify any veterans from your church or other affiliations who might like to make the trip. Forward their information directly to J.T.Hand (firstname.lastname@example.org) or to Al Sykes (email@example.com). When we get the names, addresses (or e mail addresses) and phone numbers of the veterans we will contact them.
We also need chaperones for the veterans. The cost for the chaperone is $100.00 and the next "flight" is scheduled to leave by bus from York, PA the third week in October. We will provide a box lunch. We would love to have any interested club members join us and spend the day with one of our veterans. It is an unforgettable day for the veteran and for the chaperones.
