CNB Victor Supports Honor Flight

May 14, 2012

Victor Post: Victor Holds Inaugural week for Honor Flight

Victor, N.Y. — Victor’s inaugural Week For Honor Flight has taken off. The Victor Parks and Recreation Department and Citizen Advisory Board, in partnership with the Victor Merchants Association, is hosting a week-long event to raise awareness and funds for the local efforts of Honor Flight.

A non-profit organization created solely to honor America's veterans for all their sacrifices, Honor Flight transports heroes to Washington, D.C., to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans — World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill.

“With over one thousand World War II veterans dying each day,” said Victor Parks and Recreation Assistant Director Mike Stockman, “our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is running out. This initiative is a great way to raise money for Honor Flight and thank those women and men who have bravely served our country.”

Throughout the week of Friday, May 11, to Friday, May 18, select local businesses will be displaying red, white and blue colors, and offering special discounts and donations to Honor Flight.

In addition, Honor Flight Rochester volunteers will be on hand to talk about the great things that Honor Flight does for veterans living in and around Victor.

Among the destination stops for local shoppers is Apparel Printers Plus on Main St., Victor, which has printed 144 Honor Flight T-shirts, at a cost of $10 each. Out of that, $4 will go to Honor Flight.

Meanwhile, just down the road at Phoenix Mills Plaza, Posella’s Pizza will donate 10 percent of sales for customers who present a coupon.

Each cup of coffee sold at a McDonalds in Ontario County will bring another 10 cents to Honor Flight.

Grandpa Bob’s Candy Store on Main St., will donate all popcorn and cotton candy sales.
And Canandaigua National bank Victor branch will give all proceeds from the sail of American flags to Honor Flight.

Cash or product donations were also given by the Steve Van Dyke Agency, Mead Square Pharmacy, Hopper Hills Florist, Hot Shots, Victor Parks and Recreation, Frank DeFelice, and Town of Victor employees.

Stockman said he was overwhelmed with the generosity of businesses and individuals, and looks forward to even greater participation next year.

“Our veterans are an import part of America’s freedom and woven into the very fabric of the USA,” said Stockman. “The time to express our thanks is now. If we can make a difference while they’re still around then we have done something.”
