“Field of Heroes” to honor those serving, veterans, firefighters, police officers, and EMT’s in our lives – Waynesville, MO
July 25, 2014 - July 27, 2014
The Armed Services YMCA will be presenting a field of flags, arranged in the style of Arlington National Cemetery, and each flag will be available for sponsorship to allow you to recognize a specific hero in your life. 3 X 5 flags will be on poles and arranged in precision rows in the field in the Waynesville City Park (by the old middle school) on July 25th – 27th around Old Settlers Day. All proceeds will go to support programs for families of our service members stationed right here in Missouri.
Participants will have the opportunity to sponsor a 3 X 5 flag for $50.00 or a 15″ boot flag for $25.00. On each flag or boot flag will be the name, branch of service and date of service of the honoree. A commemorative card listing the date of the event as well as the honoree’s information will be provided to each person that sponsors a 3 X 5 flag or boot flag.
On the day of the event, the public will be allowed to walk through the Field of Heroes and spend some time amongst the reverence being paid to these heroes. We will have opening ceremonies, guest speakers, and proper flag retirement services will be offered at designated times.
Corporate or individual sponsors are offered at the $500/$1000/$2500 level.
