The Norfolk Lions Club is raising money in memory of our veterans by selling 12” x 18” American flags. They will be placed in a grid on Town Hill for viewing from May 21, 2022 through June 4, 2022. A formal ceremony (possible flyover) will be held on Saturday, May 28, 2022 at 12pm 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.
Norfolk residents will receive 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 a veteran. Donor’s names and dedications will be on display on the Norfolk Lions website https://www.norfolkmalions.org/dedications. What an inspirational sight – 1,000 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 our Military families (Active Duty & Veterans) who are receiving treatment either at the VA Boston Healthcare System in West Roxbury, or at one of our world renown Boston hospitals. There is no charge for any family to stay at The Fisher House or hotel provided by 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 receive 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. Donations and flag purchases will also be accepted on the Norfolk Lions website, https://www.norfolkmalions.org/field-of-flags. For further information, please call Lion Mark Conley at 508-740-7451 or Jen Deluca from the Fisher House Boston at 508-728-8781.
F15s from the 104th Fighter Wing of the Massachusetts National Guard will be conducting a flyover of the Norfolk Town Hill Field of Flag in recognition of Memorial Day; to honor and remember our servicemen and women who answered America’s call to service and paid the ultimate price.
Flyover time for the Field of Flags in Norfolk is 11:52 AM.

Due to the Norfolk Library being closed through Memorial Day, we will be unable to create and display a physical record of dedications as we have in past years. Instead, we have recorded – and will continue to record – all of the donors and their corresponding dedications on the Lions website.
Thank you all for your understanding.
