We are happy to announce our tour schedule for 2017!
Our first trip is set for Thursday, May 11th - Saturday, May 13th. The pre-flight luncheon will be held on Thursday, May 4th at the Lakewood Elks Club from 11:00 am - 1:30 pm. All veterans and guardians that will be attending the trip will receive a confirmation in the mail which will contain RSVP information. We ask that you please respond as soon as possible. The luncheon is free to the veterans. Guardians, friends and relatives will be charged at the door. Sorry cash and checks only. Please check your RSVP for prepay information.
Depart Denver May 11th in in the morning on a non-stop Southwest Airlines flight to Baltimore BWI airport.
The group will be staying at the Hilton Baltimore BWI Airport Hotel.
We will depart Baltimore on May 13th on another non-stop Southwest Airlines flight, arriving in Denver in the evening.
Flight numbers and departure/arrival times are still being finalized.
We are tentatively planning two additional trips in 2017. The first is September 14th - 16th, and the second is October 19th - 21st. We will provide more information on these trips as the plans are solidified.
We are currently going through our applications of WWII and Korean Veterans for our 2017 trips. If you know of a Veteran who is capable of taking one of our trips please put them in touch with us. Keep in mind given the age of these Veterans, help from friends and family is often needed in getting them to and from the airport. We appreciate any help family and friends can provide.
One change of note. The $950 Guardian donation covers all expenses. In the event of a Guardian needing to cancel, Guardians must understand that due to the cost of the airlines fees, this $950 may not be fully refunded if a replacement Guardian cannot be found prior to the trip taking place. Your payment is due no less then 30 days prior to the trips dates. Thank you for your understanding.
Our preflight lunches are to inform the Veterans of our itinerary and answer any questions they might have. Also to provide training to our guardians after the lunch. It is mandatory that all guardians attend the training that lasts about an hour. All pre-flight lunches are held on the Thursday the week before our leaving. Our pre-flight lunch is held at the Lakewood Elks Lodge located at 1455 Newland St. Lakewood Co 80214.
