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.

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.
