Field of Flags

July 1st – July 15th 2021
170 Joe Knox Avenue, Mooresville, NC 28117

Exchange Clubs understand the impact created through the display of our National Flag, and this year brings greater meaning to the Mooresville Healing Field® display as the Mooresville/Lake Norman Exchange Clubs post hundreds of United States flags on the grassy field adjacent to Lowe’s YMCA on Joe Knox Avenue.   The “Field of Flags” honors those who trough their lives have honored the flags that will fly in their tribute.

The solemn formation of the Stars & Stripes honors individuals, our community, our state and our nation.

Flags may be sponsored to honor individuals and the sponsors will retain the flags at the close of the event to be displayed in Mooresville and surrounding communities as continuing reminders of heroism. This is a gift to area communities made possible through the support of businesses and area residents. Please support this inspiring event by sponsoring flags or making donations.

The funds raised through the Healing Field® flag display will benefit programs of the Mooresville—Lake Norman Exchange Club as they support community needs.

Especially meaningful this year, the vista of red, white and blue is hard to adequately describe; however, once experienced it is not to be forgotten. There will be no charge to visit the Healing Field® display, and all are invited to walk with us through the ordered rows of flags. Please be part of this meaningful event.

Thank You
