Plans are taking shape for the 5th Annual Field of Memories that will be held during Memorial Day week next year when we’ll once again erect close to 1000 3ft x 5ft American Flags in honor of the men and women of our military as a tribute and reminder of what Memorial Day is truly about.
During what we call the week of “Celebration & Commemoration,” we will host several events including a spectacular parachute jump, fireworks, a Memorial Concert, Lunch With a Veteran and of course the Field of Memories with all of the flags dedicated to men and women who have served our country.
Over 10,000 people visit the grounds to see the flags and to take part in all of the other activities. There are enormous sponsorship opportunities available to local businesses providing significant exposure. All net proceeds go to Operation Ramp It Up For Veterans, a not for profit organization dedicated to paying for and installing wheelchair/mobility ramps in the homes of disabled or physically challenged local veterans.
If you would like to learn about becoming a sponsor feel free to contact us and ask for more information. If you know someone or a business that might be interested, please provide us with the information and we’d be glad to follow-up.
More details will be coming in next month’s newsletter as planning moves forward.
