Flags for Hero’s

November 2nd – November 11th, 2021
220 Memorial Parkway, Utica, NY 13501

For the 7th straight year, a beautiful vista of red, white and blue will appear on Utica’s Memorial Parkway as The Good News Center hosts its annual Healing Field® display of 1,000 United States Flags.  Certainly, meaningful in the past years, this display takes on increased significance as our heroes of the COVID-19 pandemic are honored along with our armed forces and veterans.  The days leading up to and surrounding Veterans Day are the perfect time to remember and honor the men and women who have by their dedication become heroes in our lives.

Our unity as a people is expressed by the U.S. flag, which symbolizes our shared history, values and aspirations.  As we have come together to overcome a pandemic that has ravaged the entire world, we have gained increased appreciation for heroes who have placed themselves in harm’s way to protect and serve us all.

Proceeds will benefit Sitrin’s Military Rehabilitation Program, which provides physical therapy care for those with health problems resulting from injury or disease.

The Utica Healing Field® 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. For more information about the Good News Foundation of Central New York, please visit the website at the link: https://www.thegoodnewscenter.org/flags-for-heroes/

Please visit and support Utica’s Healing Field® display.  Bring your family and friends to experience this awe-inspiring display.

Thank You
