The Exchange Club of Greater Newburyport is excited to announce our 8th Annual Field of Honor. As in prior years, a massive display of over 300 American flags will wave in the breeze as they are posted on the grassy area at Bartlet Mall. The event runs from Wednesday, September 6 through Tuesday, September 12 with a Dedication Ceremony on Sunday, September 10.
We invite the public to attend this annual community event which honors veterans, servicemen and women, first responders, and personal heroes. Hundreds of people visit every year and have the opportunity to purchase individual flags with their own dedication. Please join with the Greater Newburyport community in experiencing and supporting this memorable event.
Flags will be set up on September 6th and will be available for pickup on September 12th. Patrons may purchase a flag for $40 at the event or in advance by contacting Ben Iacono, at 978-462-7028 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Flags can also be purchased online by clicking here.
Flags that are no longer used can be placed in the “Retired Flag Drop-Off Box“ at the Field of Honor.
“Retired Flags“ will be properly disposed of by the Boy Scouts of America through Preserving Newbury Coalition.
