Sponsor or Dedicate a Flag in The Exchange Club’s Sixth Annual Field of Honor



The Exchange Club of Lawrence and the Andovers will offer its 6th Annual Field of Honor, displaying nearly 500 American Flags on the North Andover Town Common. The Valley Patriot newspaper is proudly sponsoring this event to help the community. 

Again, this year, individuals are encouraged to dedicate a flag to someone who has served our country or community (Andover, Lawrence or North Andover).

Typically, most dedications have been to veterans and people currently serving in the armed forces.
Others have been dedicated to police officers, firefighters, teachers, and others who have served our community.

For $30 you can dedicate a flag to your personal Hero and donate the flag back to the Exchange.

Your flag will be part of the field; or for $50 you can dedicate a flag and receive the flag – flag, tag & pole, or triangle-folded and plastic wrapped with tag displayed. Your flag will be part of the field.

Flags may be purchased and/or dedicated on the website xclana.org. People may also purchase and/or dedicate a flag by sending a check, with the dedication to the Exchange Club 30 Massachusetts Ave. North Andover, MA 01845.

This magnificent field of our nation’s colors will be displayed from May 25th through June 15th, recognizing both Memorial Day and Flag Day.

As usual, the Field of Honor will conclude with a special ceremony commemorating Flag Day on Saturday June 15th.

The Exchange club estimates that some 1,000 people visited the Field of Honor last year, with many of the flags being purchased and dedicated.

For more than 75 years the Exchange Club of Lawrence and the Andovers has served all three communities. It is a chapter of the National Exchange Club, a service organization focusing upon community service, Americanism, youth, and the prevention of child abuse. ◊
