Preparations are underway for the Third Annual Veterans Day Field of Flags to be placed on the lawn of the Saugus Town Hall to honor and remember all veterans on Nov. 11. The Parson Roby Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is sponsoring this event to honor all veterans, living or deceased, including those currently serving.
American flags may be sponsored through the Parson Roby Chapter DAR at a cost of $5 each. The flags will be placed on the Saugus Town Hall prior to Nov. 11 and will wave throughout the week until Nov. 12 with your veteran’s name on the flag. Flags may be sponsored to honor a family member, friend, neighbor or employee who served our country. The deadline to sponsor flags is Oct. 30.
You may send a check ($5 per flag) made payable to Parson Roby Chapter along with the Name/Rank/Branch of Service/Years or War of the veteran and mail to Treasurer, 27 Pearson St., Saugus, MA 01906. After noon on Nov. 11, you can pick up your sponsored flag to either keep or put on a grave.
The year 2021 was the Parson Roby Chapter’s first time sponsoring the Field of Flags, and it has been a huge success. So many members of the community stopped by to thank them in remembering our veterans this way. There were over 140 flags sponsored with veterans’ names waving in the wind, and the Parson Roby Chapter hopes for many more veterans to be sponsored this year.
All proceeds from the Veterans’ Field of Flags will support the DAR’s mission to preserve American history and secure America’s future through education and promoting patriotism.
