Iowa Interstate Railroad

On January 22, the Eastern Iowa Honor Flight received a check in the amount of $7240.00 from the Iowa Interstate Railroad and their parent company Railroad Development Corporation. This was a fund raising effort of their employees along with a company match that raised funds for both The Eastern Iowa Honor Flight and the Quad Cities Honor Flight (Iowa Interstate also has operations in Illinois). President and CEO of Iowa Interstate, Jerome P. Lipka stated, “many of our employees are veterans. The employees of Iowa Interstate Railroad and Railroad Development Corporation have not forgotten the wounds and scars suffered by them and those who went before in keeping America free.” On behalf of the veterans we serve and our volunteers, the Board of Directors of the Eastern Iowa Honor Flight would like to thank the many employees of Iowa Interstate, along with Jerome Lipka, Vice-President Carrie Evans, Bobbi Allen, Human Resources Director, and Cindy Meyer, Assistant Human Resources Director for this generous donation.
