ESCANABA — The Highland Golf Club raised $5,717 at their third annual Honor Flight Golf Tournament. The Highland donated $3,000 to the U.P. Honor Flight Legacy Museum and $2,700 to the U.P. Honor Flight.

The Honor Flight Legacy Museum is a new exhibit located at the multi-use complex on the U.P. State Fairgrounds. It is designed to give visitors an opportunity to learn about the U.P. Honor Flight and capture the memories of what a day on an Honor Flight encompasses, according to Paula Waeghe, chair of the Honor Flight Legacy committee.

Organizers of the Highland’s U.P. Honor Flight Golf Tournament were overwhelmed by the over-the-top support that the community once again showed toward the event. Over 60 businesses, organizations and individuals donated generously and 28 four-person teams participated in the successful day-long event. The Highland wishes to thank everyone who participated in or contributed toward the event.
