GRANITE CITY — A free screening of the movie “Honor Flight” is set for 5:45 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 13, at the Southwestern Illinois College Sam Wolf Granite City Campus, 4950 Maryville Road.
Doors open at 4:45 p.m.; the program runs from 5:45-7:45 p.m. Refreshments will be served.
“Honor Flight” is a documentary about four living World War II veterans and a Midwest community coming together to give them the trip of a lifetime. Volunteers race against the clock to fly thousands of World War II veterans to Washington, D.C., to see the memorial constructed for them in 2004, nearly 60 years after the war.
The Knights of Columbus Tri-City Fourth Degree Assembly No. 0224 will provide the Honor Guard.
The event is sponsored by Hospice of Southern Illinois Inc., Fountain View Memory Care and The Fountains at Granite City Assisted Living.
