 Historical Society Honors Honor Flight

 On Monday, April 11, the North Manchester Historical Society is pleased to host Adam Brouwer, Events and Media Director for Honor Flight Northeast Indiana.  Honor Flight provides free one-day trips for WWII, Korean and Vietnam veterans to Washington DC to see the memorials built in their honor.  Top priority is given to WWII survivors along with other veterans who are terminally ill.  

 Honor Flight Northeast Indiana is a recognized independent hub of the Honor Flight network and was created to raise funds and provide volunteers to take WWII veterans directly from Fort Wayne to Washington DC.  Members of HFNI all have family members who served or are currently serving in the U.S. Military; they want to say "Thank You" to our World War II heroes before it's too late.  The next HFNI flight will take off on April 27th.  

Adam Brouwer has been a member of the Board of Directors of Honor Flight Northeast Indiana for almost three years and an active volunteer since its inception in 2009. Adam worked nearly 10 years at HF Group bindery in North Manchester and has recently taken a position at United Technologies in Huntington.

The program will be held in the Assembly Room at Timbercrest Retirement Center, 2201 East Street, at 6:40 p.m.  There is no cost for the program, which is free to the public.  All are welcome.  While many attend only the program, the public is also invited to come to the Assembly Room at 6 p.m. for a meal prior to the presentation.  For those who wish to attend the dinner, reservations must be made no later than noon on Friday, April 8.  The cost of the meal is $8.50, $3.50 for those on the Timbercrest meal plan.  Reservations may be made by calling Evelyn at 260-982-6777, or the Center for History at 260-982-0672.
