Honor Flight pancake breakfast fundraiser in Dixon

DIXON – Want to help send war veterans from Lee County on an Honor Flight to Washington? Have some pancakes.

Lee County Honor Flight will have a pancake breakfast from 8 a.m. to noon Sunday at the Dixon VFW Post 540, 1560 Franklin Grove Road.

Breakfast will cost $6 for adults, $3 for kids 5 to 12, and is free for kids younger than 5.

All proceeds will be used to send World War II and Korean War veterans from Lee County on future Honor Flights in the spring and summer. It costs $500 to send each veteran. Lee County Honor Flight is a chapter of the Quad City Honor Flight. Five trips are planned this year. Application forms for veterans and or guardians will be available at the pancake breakfast.
