Honor Flight breakfast huge success


To our Honor Flight supporters, on behalf of the Lee County Honor Flight Committee, we all thank you for attending the Feb. 25 pancake breakfast we hosted.

The overwhelming support caught us by surprise, so we also would like to thank you for your patience.

Your generosity made this our most successful breakfast, and the funds raised will help send six area veterans on an upcoming Honor Flight.  

Because of your support, we are very excited about our next two events; a May 19 pork chop cookout, and our Sept. 1 Bags for the Brave event.

We also have made some significant changes for next year’s pancake breakfast, among them to have plenty of food in a timely manner.  

Our committee is dedicated to sending as many Lee County and surrounding area veterans on an Honor Flight. 

Visit honorfqc.org for more information on the Honor Flight. Applications are available at the Dixon VFW, 1560 Franklin Grove Road, or from Lee County Honor Flight Committee members.
