Lincoln-Way Central to host "Salute to Service" Football Game
Wednesday, September 7, 2016

On Friday, September 9, Lincoln-Way Central will host a “Salute to Service” Football Game against Lockport High School.

Throughout this week, the Athletic Department at Lincoln-Way Central High School will be selling T-shirts in the main cafeteria during lunch periods. The cost of the shirt is $10.00 and proceeds from the sale will be donated to Honor Flight.

"Honor Flight Network is a non-profit organization created solely to honor America’s veterans for all their sacrifices. We transport our heroes to Washington, D.C. to visit and reflect at their memorials. Top priority is given to the senior veterans--World War II survivors, along with those other veterans who may be terminally ill.

Of all of the wars in recent memory, it was World War II that truly threatened our very existence as a nation--and as a culturally diverse, free society. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, an estimated 640 WWII veterans die each day. Our time to express our thanks to these brave men and women is running out."

The game will take place at 7:30 p.m. on Friday at Lincoln-Way Central. The Varsity Football Team will carry miniature American flags into the stadium and hand them to members of the student section.
