Spearheaded by students Brynn Howerton and Coy Pederson, a fundraiser for the Freedom Honor Flight will be held Wednesday April 26 at Lanesboro High School. The evening includes dinner served at 6 p.m. with a program to follow at 7:30.  Eleven Lanesboro area veterans have been chosen to take part in the next Freedom Honor Flight on May 6.  Those names will be announced during the program.
During the honor flight, veterans travel to Washington, D.C. to visit Arlington National Cemetery and war memorials.  The flight is organized by Freedom Honor Flight of LaCrosse.
All proceeds from the April 26 fundraiser will go towards the May 6 honor flight. Donations are also being accepted at Lanesboro High School with checks made payable to Honor Freedom Flight.
