July 2nd – 5th, 2022
5809 Airport Blvd., Greenfield, IN 46140

An inspiring vista of red, white & blue will appear over the Independence Day weekend at 5809 Airport Blvd., Greenfield, IN. The theme of this event is First Responders and Military. The Hancock-Lawrence Exchange Club will post 500 United States flags in a tribute honoring our military, veterans, first responders, essential workers and the heroes in our lives.

There is a story of service and sacrifice surrounding each posted flag to remind the mature and to teach the youth that our freedoms have been purchased by others with many paying the cost with their very lives.

The panorama is hard to adequately describe, but once experienced, it is not to be forgotten.  There will be no charge to visit the Field of Honor® display, and all are invited to walk with us through the ordered rows of flags. This is an event not to be missed.

Field of Honor® flags may be sponsored in tribute to individual veterans who returned as well as those who did not return. Flags are sponsored for $30, and they are received by the sponsors at the end of the event.

The Greenfield display is a gift to the community made possible through donations, sponsorships and the efforts of many dedicated volunteers. You can show your support and gratitude by sponsoring a flag or making a donation.

Thank You
