The Field of Honor will return this spring with its display of American flags dedicated to veterans and first responders stretching along West Street.
Each flag has a sponsor which raises funds for veterans services. The flags are also dedicated to veterans, police and firefighters and active servicemen and women.
The committee donated $500 to a veterans memorial fund when it appeared before the Select Board Jan. 16 to get its annual permit.
Field of Honor Committee Chairman Jeri Rumsis shared the other efforts supported with funds from Mansfield’s Field of Honor over the past year.
The committee donated $5,000 to America’s Vet Dogs for a puppy who will be named Hero and become a service dog for a veteran.
