With Rotary We Ride So Our Vets Can Fly!

By Phoenix and Metric HD

FREEDOM FLIGHT soars to new heights!!!! Each year the Rotary Clubs from Highlands and Hardee counties join forces to raise funds to send our Veterans to Washington DC for a two-day trip. They get an opportunity to visit historical monuments of those who have sacrificed so much for our freedoms. This year the Rotary Clubs teamed up with the American Legion Riders from Post 69 in Avon Park to make the poker run a great success!!!

The run traveled around both counties with stops at the American Legion Post 69 in Avon Park, AMVET Post 21 in Sebring. Taking the scenic route out of Highlands County we traveled over to Herb’s Limestone, up the back roads to Charlotte’s Webb in Wauchula and ending at Pioneer Park in Zolfo Springs. The whole community, headed up by a great group of Rotarians, provide a delicious prime rib dinner with all the fixin’s.

Great music was provided by a super band called “CRUSH HARDEE”. The Rotary Clubs host this event each year in October so if you did not have the chance to participate this year, mark your calendars for next year’s ride. What a GREAT way to honor or Veterans. SEE YOU NEXT YEAR!!!!
