Each flag in this First Responders Honor Field memorial represents a million thank you’s to the healthcare professionals in our community. Each flag is a visible reminder of the selfless, dedicated service to our community each one of these local heroes gives.
From May 23-25, 2020, volunteers and organizers will transform the grassy lawn at Mercy Hospital into a tribute of red, white and blue. The 8 foot tall American flags, paying tribute to our healthcare heroes who have sacrificed, cared for patients and risked their lives to serve our community. This incredible and patriotic event is free and hosted by Walter & Lewis Funeral and Cremation Services. The field of flags is being funded through business sponsors and flag sales. Individuals and businesses can sponsor a flag to honor our healthcare professionals. Funds raised through sponsorships and flag sales will be donated to local health care causes, and put towards additional equipment or services for the community at large, which will be consistent with the Mercy Hospital mission.
With the current COVID-19 restrictions, there will not be a formal program this year. Those who would like to show their appreciation in person are encouraged to drive by the hospital at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, May 25th, flashing their lights and honking their horns to show support as the hospital shift changes.
