A third grade class at Hollister Elementary is sponsoring Take Flight Veterans’ Night at the McDonald’s on West Highway 76 next to Ride the Ducks on Thursday, October 7, from 4-8 p.m. as a fundraiser to support Ozarks Honor Flight. Students will be greeting veterans and customers with McDonald’s donating a portion of the evening’s proceeds to the Ozarks Honor Flight Program which flies WWII Veterans to Washington, D.C. to view the memorial built to honor their service. The students will have the opportunity to hear two World War II Veterans speak to them on October 5th and 6th. Additionally, the veteran father of one of the students will also visit the class. Teacher Amy Jo Kilgore has made it her mission for her students to understand veterans’ contributions and arranged for the service-learning project so they could demonstrate their support and appreciation.
