UP Honor Flight donation

The Goodman Conservation Club of Goodman, Wis., selected the Upper Peninsula Honor Flight organization to receive a $1,200 donation to support sending local military veterans who served in World War II, Korea and Vietnam to Washington D.C. to visit the memorials built in their honor. The Goodman Conservation Club is dedicated to promoting conservation education and hunting sportsmanship in Goodman and the surrounding area. The U.P. Honor Flight has honored 1,321 veterans from the area since 2011. Mission XVIII will fly in May 2020. Qualifying veterans from all counties in the Upper Peninsula as well as Wisconsin counties bordering the Upper Peninsula are encouraged to send their applications to the U.P Honor Flight. Information and applications for both veterans  and guardian escorts can be found on the U.P. Honor Flight website at www.uphonorflight.org or by contacting local U.P. Honor Flight representative Scott Lewellyn at 906-396-0131 or slewellyn@uphonorflight.org. Goodman Conservation Club members presenting their donation to U.P.
