Creating an awe-inspiring panorama, United States flags will fly in a solemn formation at Memorial Park during May of 2022.  This stirring display of 200 flags will bring the community together in a patriotic tribute to honor our heroes.  Each U.S. flag represents an individual and tells a story.  Flags may be sponsored to honor individuals currently serving in our Active-Duty Military, Fallen Servicemen and Women, First Responders, Veterans, Hometown Heroes and COVID-19 Victims.  This unique event is the perfect opportunity for all of us to remember and honor our many heroes.

The Stars & Stripes reminds us of who we are as a people.  Americans meet the challenges of history and overcome hardships becoming stronger.  That is just who we are.  The United States flag represents our solidarity in creating a brighter tomorrow and uniting us all.

This moving 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.

The display is open to all without charge. Don’t miss it!

Thank You
