Exchange Club hosting Field of Honor flag display


LEWISTON — Auburn Exchange Club will host a Field of Honor flag display from May 28-30, at Simard-Payne Memorial Park in Lewiston. This display will fly 400 3 feet by 5 feet U.S. flags on 8-foot poles as a patriotic tribute to honor and salute service men and women of the past, present and future.

The Field of Honor event is free of charge and open to the public daily, May 28 through Memorial Day.

Flags are available for sponsorship for $40 each, to be taken home after the event and flown proudly to continue the tribute. Flag sponsors will have the option of honoring a family member, friend, personal hero or to all who serve and sacrifice for our freedom. Flags with such an honoree will bear an identification label.

The proceeds from flag sales for this event will benefit the Auburn Exchange Youth Fund.
