Creating Memories for Veterans on Honor Flight

Honor flight donations Veronica E. Connor Middle School students led by their teacher, Mary Jane Fonte, made mini banana breads wrapped with patriotic ribbons to be donated to the Veterans who flew to Washington, D.C. as honored guests of Buffalo Niagara Honor Flight. The treats were given to the veterans attending a Meet and Greet event for the Veterans and Guardians who will accompany the Veterans on their trip. Letters and cards written by students from Grand Island High School, Kaegebein and Huth Road Elementary will be given to the Honor Flight Veterans during a dinner reception in Arlington, Va. on flight day. These acts of gratitude toward America’s heroes sustains a long history of Grand Island students showing Veterans respect and appreciation.
