Citizens for Milford and the Milford Corps of the Salvation Army are excited to announce that the popular Field of Flags installation will return to the beautifully revitalized Draper Memorial Park with an updated program.
New for 2022, the flags will be displayed on Memorial Day, the Fourth of July, and Veterans Day. All area citizens, organizations, and businesses are invited to sponsor a 3′ x 5′ American flag to fly on a 10′ staff in Draper Memorial Park for a $40 donation.
Each flag includes a yellow ribbon with an attached card naming the person being honored, the honoree’s military branch and years of service, and the sponsor’s name. Sponsors can personalize each flag by providing a photo if desired.
Field of Flags Chairperson Peter Scandone says, “Each flag honors the heroism of our many local veterans and active duty service members. Our goal is to have every one of the flags renewed and to gather enough new flag sponsorships so that we will be installing even more flags this spring.”
To sponsor a flag for the Draper Memorial Park Field of Flags project, citizens need to complete a form and mail it to the address provided on the form with a $40 check made out to the Salvation Army before May 23. The sponsorship order form can be printed from the CitizensforMilford.com website. Requests for a sponsorship form or questions can be submitted by email to CitizensforMilford@gmail.com
