The Norfolk Lions Club is raising money to honor our veterans by selling 12” x 18” American flags. They will be placed in a grid on Town Hill for viewing from April 17 through May 31. A formal “Salute to the Flags” will be held on Saturday, May 23 at 10:00 AM to honor those brave men and women who have served in the armed forces. We also encourage you to visit the “Field of Flags” after the Town Memorial Day Ceremony on Monday, May 25.
Norfolk residents should have received a package in the mail from the Norfolk Lions requesting support for a “Field of Flags” on Town Hill. Residents of surrounding towns are also welcome to participate in this tribute to our veterans. The flags cost $10.00 each and may be dedicated to the memory of or the honor of a veteran. Donor’s names and dedications will be on display at the Norfolk Public Library. What an inspirational sight – 1000 flags on Town Hill – proudly commemorating our veterans!
The net proceeds from this “Field of Flags” will be donated to The Fisher House Boston, a non-profit charity that provides a home away from home for families of veterans who are receiving treatment at the VA Boston Healthcare System in West Roxbury. There is no charge for any family to stay at The Fisher House.
The Lions ask the community of Norfolk and surrounding towns to rally around this commemorative in support of the men and women who have sacrificed so much, by buying a flag. Please return the remittance envelope you received in the mail or you may send a check with your name and dedication to Norfolk Lions Club/Fisher House, PO BOX 608, Norfolk MA 02056. For further information, please call Lion Don Hanssen at 508-520-0225 or Jen Deluca from the Fisher House Boston at 508-728-8781.
