• The Landings Donates to Veterans Flight of Southern Illinois

    January 07, 2019

    The Landings at Reed Station Crossing presents Veterans Flight of Southern Illinois with a check of $450 for their upcoming flight. All the proceeds of The Landings Murder Mystery Dinner in April of last year, residents selling cookies to the community and other various events held at The Landings were donated to Veterans Flight of Southern Illinois.
    Veterans Flight of Southern Illinois is dedicated to honoring our veterans with a free trip to Washington DC to visit their monuments and memorials. These memorials were built to honor their service, and we believe it is imperative they have the opportunity to see them.
    This one-day trip includes visits to the National WWII Memorial and Korean War Memorial. Additional stops at other monuments and memorials may also be included. Veterans pay nothing for the trip. Veterans Honor Flight of Southern Illinois covers airfare, bus fare, entry fees, food, and supplies.
    Three of The Landings very own residents were able to attend flights in 2017 and 2018. “It was an experience of a lifetime,” states Landings resident, “One that I will never forget.”
    The Landings proudly supports our Veterans and looks forward to working with Veterans Flight of Southern Illinois in 2019.
