GFWC seeks sendoff participants

General Federation of Womens Club—Big Rapids members are planning a send-off for veterans participating in the Mid-Michigan Honor Flight on Tuesday, May 22. Veterans will spend the night at Ferris State University before heading to Grand Rapids to catch a flight to Washington, D.C. GFWC members are inviting community members to join them as they line Perry Avenue at the site of the former Kmart plaza to cheer on the veterans. Anyone interested in participating should plan to arrive at 7 a.m., or a little earlier, on Tuesday to show their support and gratitude for the veterans’ service. GFWC members suggest patriotic clothing and encourage bringing flags, banners or whatever else will help present a red, white and blue scene as the bus travels down Perry Avenue.
