ThisWeek Community News would like to thank Honor Flight Columbus and Genoa Baptist Church for playing host to the 11th annual Honor Flight Columbus reunion Nov. 3 and for allowing our staff members to set up a booth at the event so we could engage with the community.
We enjoyed chatting with readers and getting to know some of the veterans who have gone on the Honor Flight trip to Washington, D.C.
Honor Flight Columbus executive director Pete MacKenzie shared some information on the program itself and the reunion.
We also enjoyed learning some not-so-well-known facts from President Abraham Lincoln (aka John Cooper of Pickerington) about the president's private and public life.
The reunion had a tremendous turnout, with roughly 800 in attendance, by our estimates.
