Few opportunities allow everyday people to sit and visit with World War II veterans. The Central Missouri Honor Flight's Fourth Annual Honor Ball does.
"You're rubbing elbows with history," said Mary Paulsell, president of the host Central Missouri Honor Flight.
It's the only direct fundraiser for the not-for-profit organization, which flies World War II veterans at no cost to see the World War II memorial in Washington D.C. The formal dinner and dance, in the style of a military ball, begins with cocktails at 5:30 p.m. Dec. 9 at the Holiday Inn Executive Center, Columbia.
