Draper Memorial Park Field of Flags Honors Veterans and Active Military Personnel
Last November Citizens for Milford partnered with the Milford Corps of the Salvation Army to launch the Draper Memorial Park Field of Flags, a tribute acknowledging the service and sacrifice of our veterans and active military personnel with a display of American flags placed in Draper Memorial Park on Veterans Day. Folks who sponsored a flag last November will have their flags redisplayed in Draper Memorial Park on Memorial Day, Flag Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day this year. They will be invited to renew their sponsorship for another year after Labor Day in time for Veterans Day 2017.
If you missed out on our first Field of Flags display, you can choose to sponsor a flag in time for this Memorial Day for a $60 donation. If you sponsor a flag now, your donation will place a flag in Draper Park for the following four patriotic holidays:
- Memorial Day
- Flag Day
- Fourth of July
- Labor Day
To sponsor a flag for the Draper Memorial Park Field of Flags project, click here to print a copy of the Field of Flags Order Form. Be sure to complete the form and mail it to the address provided on the form with your $60 check made out to SALVATION ARMY as soon as possible.
If you need to be mailed a copy of the form, please email us at CitizensforMilford@gmail.com.
If you prefer to sponsor a flag for the entire Sponsorship Year of all five patriotic holidays (Veterans Day, Memorial Day, Flag Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day), then please wait to send your sponsorship form until this coming Labor Day has passed.
Your $60 donation qualifies as a tax-deductible charitable contribution.
Each $60 donation includes a 3′ x 5′ American flag, standing tall on a 10′ staff, in Draper Memorial Park. Each flag will include a yellow ribbon with an attached card naming the person being honored, military branch, years of service, and sponsor’s name. You can choose to sponsor a flag in honor of a veteran (alive or deceased) or an active member of the military. You can also choose to sponsor a flag in honor of all our nation’s veterans.
