Donation to honor flight


Shauna Sheridan, Assistant Universal Supervisor at the First National Bank of Amboy’s North Branch at Joe Drive, presented a donation to Jim Travi, a volunteer for the Honor Flight of the Quad Cities, last Tuesday. The donation is one of many made by the employees of First National Bank in Amboy with funds generated by the Casual Friday Program. Employees at all the branches in Amboy, Dixon, Franklin Grove and Monroe Center participate in the program and a variety of charities benefit from it throughout the year. Sheridan said she requested to do the presentation for the Honor Flight donation because she has numerous family members that have served or are serving in the military. Travi said there are two flights scheduled for 2021 and Lee County veterans will travel to Washington D. C. in the spring of 2022.  Anyone wanting to know more about the Honor Flights and how to be part of one, regardless of where they live, should visit
