NORFOLK LIONS CLUB
FIELD OF FLAGS
The Norfolk Lions Club is raising money in memory of our veterans by selling 12” x 18” American flags which will be placed in a grid on Town Hill for viewing from May 20th through June 3rd 2023.
A formal Ceremony will be held on Saturday May 27, 2023 on Town Hill at 12:00PM to dedicate the field and remember those brave men and women who have served in the armed forces and made the ultimate sacrifice in service to our Country.
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 our Military families who are receiving treatment either at the VA Boston Healthcare System in West Roxbury or at one of our world renown Boston hospitals.
Any veteran or active military personnel family, wartime or peacetime, is eligible to stay at the Fisher House. These homes are built on the grounds of major military and VA medical centers. The homes enable family members to be close to loved ones at the most stressful times.
There is at least one Fisher House at every major military medical center to assist families in need and to ensure that they are provided with the comforts of home in a supportive environment.
There is no charge for any family to stay at The Fisher House or hotel provided by Fisher House. More information about Fisher House can be found at https://fisherhouseboston.org
