■ Lexington's ambassadors for the Honor Flight Bluegrass, Phill Pittman and George Campbell, will address the Military Officers Association of America at its quarterly luncheon meeting at the Equestrian Woods Country Club in Nicholasville at noon May 21.
For the past decade the Honor Flight Network has flown thousands of America's veterans, mostly World War II survivors, to Washington, D.C., to reflect on their respective memorials at no cost to the veterans. The Honor Flight Bluegrass Chapter, based in Louisville, has flown more than 1,700 Kentucky veterans since 2008.
The country club is at 107 Clubhouse Drive near Harrodsburg Road and Spring Crest Drive, approximately two miles south of Man o' War Boulevard.
The meeting is open to all military officers — active duty, reserve, and retired — and their guests. Reservations: Pat Jones, (859) 271-2606 or email@example.com. A buffet lunch is $17.
Honor Flight Bluegrass has three flights scheduled for 2015: May 16 and June 6, both departing from Louisville, and Sept. 26 departing from Lexington.
