Greater Peoria Honor Flight Fundraiser
July 23, 2017
Greater Peoria Honor Flight was the first Honor Flight we ever met at the WWII Memorial in the fall of 2014. Ever since then we've had a very special bond with them, so you can imagine the delight we had co-hosting a fundraiser for them in July of 2017.
The fundraiser was held at a local museum called "Wheels O' Time." I can hardly think of a more enjoyable venue. Immediately upon entering the main building, we felt as if we had stepped back in time to a scene from the movie "State Fair" (1945) or possibly the boardwalk of Coney Island in the 1930s. Classic cars from the 10s, 20s, 30s, 40s, and 50s filled the center hall. On either side were countless rooms with various amusements such as a presidential barbershop quartet, a vintage grocer's store, a music parlor, reading room, mechanics shop, and much more!
