LAKE WORTH — The Palm Beach County Democratic Veterans Caucus said it wants to help World War II veterans take a trip on Honor Flight of South Florida, a nonprofit that flies veterans to the nation’s capital to see the National World War II Memorial.

Although the flight is free, the Caucus said there’s a $400 fee that must be paid for a sponsor to fly with the veterans, who are selected by Honor Flight.

The Caucus is hosting a meeting Wednesday at the Guatemalan Maya Center, 430 North G Street from 6:30 to 8 p.m. The group is asking for a $10 donation for Honor Flight and to help fund the Caucus’ upcoming July 4th picnic at John Prince Park, west of Lake Worth at 1 p.m., to celebrate veterans.

The Caucus said it has a pavilion reserved for 125 people.

“This is a fabulous way to honor our veterans,” said Caucus President Carlton Cartwright.

The caucus is asking those interested in donating to send checks made out to Cartwright to 440 South Rosemary Avenue, Suite #10, West Palm Beach, FL 33401.
