The Huntington Men’s Chorus will perform patriotic music and refreshments will be served following the ceremony, which will take place amidst the American flag display known as the “Field of Honor” organized by the Kiwanis Club of Huntington.

 

For the 10th year in a row, The Kiwanis Club of Huntington is sponsoring a “Field of Honor” of American flags on display at Huntington Town Hall. 3’x5’ American flags are mounted on 8’ poles surrounding Veterans Plaza on the front lawn of Huntington Town Hall. Each flag has its own custom-printed gold ribbon personalized and dedicated to each veteran honoree. Flags can be purchased at BuyAFlag.org for $35. Flags were assembled in early September 2019 and will be taken down in December 2019. Net proceeds benefit veterans’ and children’s causes in Huntington.
