QUINCY (WGEM) — The Quincy Elk lodge #100 presented Great River Honor Flight with a $3,500 donation on Friday.
This is one of 7 checks given this year to Honor Flight hubs throughout the state of Illinois.
This is just part of their involvement with veteran-related programs.
The local lodge is very active with veterans at the Illinois Veterans Home in Quincy and welcomes any veterans wanting to be part of the club by offering free memberships for the first year.
Local Honor flights will continue in April of 2020. To date, 1,855 local veterans have participated.
