Seminole, FL (November 6, 2015) – Kiwanis Club of Seminole Breakfast in cooperation with Mayor Leslie Waters and the City of Seminole are recognizing veterans with the Field of Honor program on the front lawn of Seminole City Hall. “The City of Seminole is very pleased to support this Field of Honor. What a great display of patriotism, and wonderful recognition of our military veterans,” Waters said.
This is the first year for this project and already it’s sold out. “We are absolutely overwhelmed with the support by this demonstration project and will open it up to the entire community next November,” said Wayne McKenney, Kiwanis Club of Seminole Breakfast president.
The public is invited to reserve a Field of Honor flag for veterans to be displayed next November 2016. The cost to dedicate a flag is $35 and the flag is a 3′ x 5′ American flag mounted on an 8′ pole, placed in precision rows on the front lawn of Seminole City Hall. Each flag will have a custom printed yellow streamer with the personalized dedication.
Members of the Kiwanis Club started putting up the flags on November 1, 2015 and will take the flags down on December 1, 2015. The commemorative yellow streamers will be available to those who honored a veteran. All net proceeds will benefit the children of the Greater Seminole area.
