Mazo sportsmen’s club donates to Honor Flight


Mark Schoenemann presented a check for $500 from the Wisconsin River Sportsmen’s Club to Badger Honor Flight at their monthly meeting on September 5. It costs $500 just for one veteran to go to Washington DC to see the memorials that they were a part of. For many veterans, this trip has been one of the most memorable days of their lives! Mark Schoenemann was a recipient of the May 18 flight to DC and his son, Joseph, was his guardian, who is also a veteran that deployed twice to the Middle East. The Mazomanie Wisconsin River Sportsman’s Club is a proud supporter of all veterans. Photo contributed.
