News Rotary Honor Air Flight participants being sought

World War II veterans are being sought to participate in one of the final two flights of Honor Air.

Honor Air, a project of Rotary District 7670, takes World War II veterans to Washington, DC to visit the World War II Memorial and other monuments.

The flights will leave Asheville Airport on the mornings of Saturday, May 7 and 14, and will fly the vets to Washington, DC where they will board a bus for transportation to the memorial and the monuments.

The group will have lunch while in Washington, and will leave in the late afternoon for their flight back to Asheville, arriving about 7 p.m. at the Asheville Airport.

Funding for the project comes from several area Rotary Clubs, including the Franklin Rotary Club, Borg Warner, and other donations.

Additional corporate sponsors are needed. The flights are scheduled to be discontinued after the May 14, 2011 flight.

Any World War II veteran who wishes to go on one of the flights can contact Vic Perry, Franklin Rotary Club Honor Air Chairman, at the Macon County Clerk of Courts Office, (828)349-2042, or Franklin Rotary Club President John Yermack at Franklin Office and Art Supply, (828)349-7468.
