Honor Flight/Salute to WWII Veterans - August 19, 2017

On August 19, 2017, Arcadia, CA Lodge 2025, in association with Honor Flight–Inland Empire, held a fundraiser honoring WWII Veterans. Chairman for the event was Arcadia Exalted Ruler, Robert DiGioia. The Lodge hosted over 40 WWII Veterans for dinner and entertainment. Each Veteran was individually honored and issued a Certificate of Recognition for their service. With proceeds from the event, Arcadia Lodge was able to raise over $4,400.00 for Honor Flight. This amount is enough to send four (4) WWII Veterans to Washington, D. C. to visit the WWII Memorial.
