Norfolk Lions to Pay Tribute to Veterans with “Field of Flags” on Town Hill

The Norfolk Lions Club is raising money in memory of veterans by selling 12” x 18” American flags.  The flags will be placed in a grid on Town Hill for viewing from May 18 through June 1.  A formal ceremony will be held on Saturday, May 25 at 10 a.m. to dedicate the field in memory of the men and women who served in the armed forces and made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our country.

Flags are $10 each and can be purchased on the Lions website:  Donor names and dedications will be on the website.

The net proceeds from the “Field of Flags” will be donated to the Fisher House Boston, a non-profit charity that provides a home away from home for military families (active duty and veterans) who are receiving treatment either at the VA Boston Healthcare System in West Roxbury, or at one of the world-renowned Boston hospitals. There is no charge for any family to stay at the Fisher House or at a hotel provided by Fisher House.
