Fort Lupton’s rural setting has created a blend of American history and small-town values amid dynamic growth, which offers its residents a wonderful lifestyle.  The City’s Senior Advisory Committee adds an inspiring new feature for the Front Range this November by hosting Fort Lupton’s first Field of Honor® flag display for the week surrounding Veterans Day.

The Field of Honor® focuses on honoring veterans who have served our nation at home and abroad. Law enforcement officers, Fire & EMS, and frontline workers have similarly earned our gratitude through their service and sacrifice – now more than ever.

It is appropriate to honor our heroes with the display of the flag that they honored though their service and sacrifice. Fort Lupton’s Field of Honor® display of U.S. Flags brings the community and visitors together as 1,000 United State flags are posted at Pearson Park along the South Platte River.  Field areas are carefully planned and organized to honor each respective group.

This inspiring and memorable panorama of red, white and blue is hard to describe, but once experienced it is not to be forgotten.

The Fort Lupton Field of Honor® display is a gift to the area made possible through donations, sponsorships and the efforts of many dedicated volunteers. You can show your support and gratitude by sponsoring a flag, making a donation or doing both.  Programs of the Fort Lupton Senior Center will benefit from funds raised through the Field of Honor®.

Please visit the Field of Honor® display and invite your family and friends to walk with you among the ordered rows of U.S. flags. There is no better way to observe Veterans Day.
