We love to visit our events when possible, because walking amidst the rows and columns of flags we meet wonderful people who are anxious to share their excitement in experiencing a Healing Field® or Field of Honor® massive display of U.S. flags. Our local hosting organizations also share their same experiences with us. We have learned repeatedly that it is only when volunteers and visitors walk among the flags that the impact of the display can be really appreciated.
Watching a family escort their World War II veteran grandfather to see the flag which honors him as their hero, is a /touching experience. Listening as a young girl calls to her mother, “Here a flag with a tag honoring an eight-year-old girl, just like me.” These and so many more experiences give our efforts meaning.
“That the mature may remember and the youth may learn” is a phrase which explain the impact our flag displays have on communities.
Imagine 1,500 United States flags, each measuring 3 by 5 feet and flying atop 7½ foot tall white flagstaffs. Not just imagination, this stunning vista becomes reality during the second week of November as the Georgetown Rotary brings its 5th Annual Field of Honor® event to San Gabriel Park.READ MORE
