Thanks to another great night of fund-raising at The Throttle in Gwinn and sponsors, Joe and Sue Boogren of Boogren MiTECH Consulting of Gwinn and Sally and Scott Searle, over $1700 was raised for the Upper Peninsula Honor Flight to send World War II and Korean veterans to see the memorials created in their honor in Washington, D.C., free of charge. Pictured at the fund-raiser are: front, Karen Hares; second row from left, Pat Makela, Sue Beranek, Paula Waeghe, and Sally Searle; back, Paul Makela, Deb Bedogne, Barb Van Rooy, Sue Boogren, and Scott Searle. To date, over 400 veterans have had their “Tour of Honor” and Mission VI is slated to leave the Delta County Airport on May 14. For more information, contact Barb Van Rooy at (906) 280-1471.
