GREATER NEWBURYPORT, MA | Field of Honor | 2012

April 15, 2012  |   Uncategorized   |     |   2 Comments

September 7-11, 2012 – Bartlet Mall (Greenleaf St.)


In early September volunteers will gather to post hundreds of United States flags for Greater Newburyport’s 3th Annual Field of Honor which will again be hosted by the Exchange Club of Greater Newburyport. This sea of red, white and blue American flags waving in the breeze has become an annual tribute dedicated to our veterans and emergency first responders.
Please join us as we walk amid the ordered rows of Old Glory where each full-sized flag waves atop an eight foot white staff in a stirring formation. Standing amid the flags, we remember and honor those who defend and serve.
To volunteer during the event CLICK HERE.

All flags will remain on display until the end of the event when they will be available for pickup. Spread through our community, these sponsored Field of Honor® flags can then continue to be displayed as tangible reminders of Greater Newburyport Field of Honor®.


Event Schedule:

9/7 FRIDAY – 8:00AM: Posting of Flags
9/9 SUNDAY – 12 NOON: Field of Honor Dedication Program
9/11 TUESDAY – 8:00 AM: Removal of Field

    can you answer a question for me? I purchased a flag via internet payment paypal..it seems like it is going to be shipped to me.? I am confused, I wanted it to fly on the mall and then pick it up..why does it say shipped? Also, will my husband;s name appear on the flag/field if it flies? sorry for so many questions thanks

      Charlne:
      Your flag will fly at the Field of Honor. We do not ship flags. We print your dedication on a tag which is attached to your flag. Flags can be picked up Monday after 5pm or Tuesday 8 – 1:30 pm.
