(Editor’s Note: The Parson Roby Chapter of the DAR (Daughters of the American Revolution) of Saugus issued the following press release this week)

  Preparations for the Veteran’s Day Field of Flags to be placed on the lawn of the Saugus Town Hall to honor and remember all veterans on November 11, 2022 is underway. The Parson Roby Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution 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. 11th and will wave throughout the week until Nov. 11.

  Flags may be sponsored to honor a family member, friend, neighbor or employee who served our country. The deadline to sponsor flags is October 30th. 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, 88 Main St., Saugus, MA 01906. After noon on Nov. 11th, you can pick up your sponsored flag to either keep or put on a grave.

  2011 was our first year sponsoring the Field of Flags and it was a huge success. So many members of the community stopped by to thank us for remembering our veterans this way. There were over 100 flags sponsored with veteran’s names waving in the wind and we hope for many more veterans to be sponsored this year.

  All proceeds from the Veteran’s Field of Flags will support the Daughters of the American Revolution’s mission to preserve American history and secure America’s future through education and promoting patriotism. For more information on how to sponsor a flag or in joining the Parson Roby
