         The C-G-D Peer Helpers are at it again.  The group recently presented a check for $1200 to the Brushy Creek Honor Flight to send two Wright County veterans on the Washington D.C. trip next year. The Peer Helpers raise the money through dances, concessions, selling butter braids, donations and more.  Julie Reed, who helps organize the flight for Wright County, said about the three middle schoolers who presented the donation, “We’re so proud of you, and you should be proud of yourselves.” The veterans who received the donation on behalf of the Honor Flight were also very impressed. Denny Mraz of Clarion who went on the flight last May said, “Every little bit helps since all the money comes from donations like this. And the trip is so well worth it.” Tom Erickson, who also was on the Honor Flight in May, added, “It’s amazing what the kids have done. It means a lot to veterans like us”
