Help Welcome Home Veterans This Weekend!

Please join the STARS Committee this Sunday in welcoming back and honoring WWII, Korean War, Cold War, and Vietnam War veterans as part of Rochester's Honor Flight Mission 51. The Honor Flight program "flies our heroes to Washington, DC to visit and reflect together at their memorials." Many of these veterans did not receive a reception home following their service. This event is an opportunity to show each of them our appreciation.

When:  Sunday, October 23rd at 11:15AM-1:00PM
Where:  Rochester International Airport
What:  Show-up, clap, cheer, smile, cry, and thank the veterans!

Few additional details:
- You can enter the airport at baggage claim and go up to the second floor.
- MCC folks will be gathering on the second floor by the small Dunkin' Donuts near the airport entrance.
- You will not need to go through airport security.​
- Parking at the airport will cost a few dollars for the duration of the event.

Please contact Jessica Barone <> if you plan to attend and/or if you have any questions!
