Image6th Annual Veterans Honor Flight is Coming Up

Dave Williamson, Veterans Honor Flight Coordinator

Greetings Rotary:  Wanted to provide an update on one of the club’s favorite projects – the annual Veterans Honor Flight.  This year’s flight will take place on Sunday, October 5th.  We have three airplanes currently available and can accommodate up to 12 veterans and caregivers as needed.  We depart
Don Scott Airport here in Columbus at around 6:30 a.m. and return that evening around 7:30 p.m.  I am encouraging members to canvas their family, neighbors, friends and acquaintances for names of veterans they know who would be interested in flying to Washington D.C. and touring their memorials with us this year.

We are actively soliciting applications from veterans for this year’s flight.  We fly on private airplanes to Manassas, VA where we load into vans and drive into D.C. for our tours of the WWII Memorial, Korean War Memorial, and Vietnam Memorial in the morning.  We have lunch at Fort Meyer Army Post and then travel to the Air Force Memorial, Pentagon Memorial, Arlington National Cemetery and observe the Changing of the Guard Ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknowns, and finally over to the Iwo Jima Memorial before heading back to the Manassas airport and flight home.  It is a long day, but on each of our previous trips our veterans have commented how important it was to see them all as each one had a special meaning to each of them. 

We are open to accepting applications from veterans of WWII, Korean War, and Vietnam War eras.  The application is available at the Friday club meeting, is posted on the club web site, or can be obtained from me personally via email or just call and I can send one out. 

If there are any questions, please feel free to contact me via phone (614-327-8102) or by email at and I would be happy to answer them for you.

ImageOn Friday, September 5, 2014 from 12:00 to 1:00p.m, at the Athletic Club of Columbus (ACC), Columbus Rotary and the ACC will be sponsoring the Rotary/ACC networking event, First Friday.  Any Rotarian from any Rotary Club (and any guest they might bring) is invited, as is any ACC member.   You must bring a business card with you (hopefully more than one) to gain entrance to the luncheon.  The luncheon will be in Talley Ho Room on the first floor of the ACC, and each person will order from the lunch menu and pay their own bill.  There is no agenda, no program, just networking.  Jim Bishop, the Columbus Rotarian organizer of this event,  will probably take a minute to welcome everybody, but that will be all.  The idea is for persons to network, and if any ACC members who are not Rotarians decide they wish to learn more about Rotary, so much the better.  This event is limited to the first 40 persons who register.  If the demand is great, we will increase the number who may attend and find a larger room for future First Fridays.  To RSVP, please contact Jim Bishop of Columbus Rotary at (614) 229-4969.  If you do not reserve a place ahead of time, please come anyway, as we always seem to have enough room for last minute guests.  Also remember that this event is every First Friday, so please put in your calendar for 2014: October 3, November 7, and December 5.  I look forward to seeing you there.    


Steve Heiser,
Past President, Columbus Rotary

We heard from Alex Sheen, who started the group "Because I Said I Would" ( Alex spoke movingly (and received a standing ovation) about how a movement has inspired people to pledge, and honor, their word to make the world better one promise at a time.

According to the website, Alex's "father died of small cell lung cancer on September 4th, 2012. His father was good with his promises, so Alex titled his father’s eulogy “because I said I would” and created the promise card in his memory. Eventually Alex would decide to resign from his corporate position in order to advance because I said I would‘s mission.

Alex now works to better of humanity through the importance of a promise in what little ways he can. It started by waking up early before going to work and handwriting letters to people thanking them for requesting promise cards. This dedication continued to develop as he began fulfilling charitable promises. These promises include getting 100 tickets to Disneyland for children with cancer and walking 245 miles across the entire state of Ohio in 10 days to raise awareness for the victims of sexual violence (a promise he made to Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight," who were held prisoner in Cleveland for years in a dark chapter in the city's history.

Alex asked that we not video him, wanting the focus to be on "Because I Said I Would," and not himself. You can, however, see Alex in this video, if you want to hear his inspirational message. Visit the "Because I Said I Would" website to see more amazing stories of promises kept.
