The below email was sent to Assembly #0159 members by Sir Knight Richard Snare, who requested it be shared with the members of our council. Please read and consider participating in this honorable and worthy cause. Here is Richard’s message:
I want to share with you the email I received from Karen Maex of Southwest Florida Honor Flights. Karen and her team are a remarkable group of people who also unselfishly give of their time, talents and treasures to honoring our Veterans. It takes countless hours of their time to put this program together and the coordination that goes on behind the scenes is mind boggling. Karen’s team are the doers of the world, not the talkers of the world.
Please see the 2017 schedule in Karen’s email below and consider becoming an aid to a Veteran for a day and fly up to Washington DC and spend time with the greatest generation. I assure you that you will come away as the benefactor for participating.
Also, consider and participating in the welcome home events at Clearwater/St. Pete Airport on the days our Veterans return home from their day in Washington DC. Come out and meet the men who put their lives on the line for our Freedom. Be a part of the Doers of the world. Parking at the Airport is free for these events.
