Thank you to all who give to Leatherstocking Honor Flights

Leatherstocking Honor Flight has been honoring area veterans for over 10 years with a fantastic trip to Washington, D.C. to visit the memorials dedicated in their honor. These trips are very powerful and have a huge impact on the veterans who take the trip. They return home with a much better understanding of how highly revered and honored they are.

These trips are naturally free to the to the vets and we’ve only been able to conduct these missions because the community has supported us since the beginning. It is important to us that we make this clear to the vets because it broadens the message.

That having been said, we’d like to give a huge shout out to those who participated in the fantastic Convoy for a Cause and raised over $4,000 each for LHF and WGY’s Christmas Wish. It was quite a sight to see well over 200 huge trucks parade into the Fonda Fairgrounds and participate in the time trials and drag races.

A huge thanks to Richard Kennedy and his crew and the Fonda Fair Board for a the work and heart it took to put this together. The money raised will go a long way toward honoring our local vets.
