8/8/2018 - Kiwanis Club to Hold 9th Annual Field of Honor at Town Hall

Huntington - For the 9th year in a row, The Kiwanis Club of Huntington will be sponsoring a “Field of Honor” of American flags on display at Huntington Town Hall.

 

“The Field of Honor is an opportunity for Huntington to recognize and honor the patriotism of our military veterans,” said Supervisor Chad A. Lupinacci. “Participation has been great in the past, representing Huntington’s overwhelming support for our armed forces and veterans, and its proceeds go to a wonderful cause.”

 

3’x5’ American flags will be mounted on 8’ poles surrounding Veterans Plaza on the front lawn of Huntington Town Hall. Each flag will have its own custom-printed gold ribbon personalized and dedicated to each veteran honoree.

 

Flags can be purchased at BuyAFlag.org for $35. Flags will be assembled during the month of September 2018 and taken down in December 2018. Net proceeds benefit veterans and children in Huntington.

 

The Kiwanis of Huntington Children's Foundation sends children to Kamp Kiwanis in upstate Rome, New York, delivers Thanksgiving baskets to those in need, and takes children on a shopping adventure at Target in December.

 

For more information about the Field of Honor, please call (631) 991-2001 or email kiwanisofhuntingtonny@gmail.com.
