Field of Flags, 2013

You may recall that last year, in honor of Veteran’s Day, my Kiwanis club did something really cool – we placed 1,000 flags on our town common.

If you don’t recall you can read about it here.

We are going to be doing it again this Saturday and I, for one, can’t wait. We’ve got a ceremony planned and the flags will be up for 2 full weeks this time and it’s just an honor to do this and to share the proceeds with Fisher House.

We’ve met over 50% of our goal now which means we’ve got just over 500 of those flags sponsored. We’re hoping to have all of them sponsored by the end of the week and, while I know most of you don’t live in my town, I know that some of you reading this do. I also know that some of you might want to support this event anyway, especially since we split the proceeds 50/50 with Fisher House and they are a national organization.

Sponsoring a flag is $10 and you can designate it to be in honor or in memory of someone if you choose. Follow this link to make a donation via PayPal and thanks – on behalf of veterans and Kiwanis clubs everywhere.
