First Responder Appreciation Honor Field Healthcare Professionals

May 23, 2020 10:00 AM to May 26, 2020 09:00 AM

Here is the press release about this year's 1st Responder Appreciation event, sponsor form and flag sponsor form. We would love to have you join us this year in supporting our local healthcare professionals.

 

We will be setting up the field on May 23rd in the morning at 10:00 am (this could change based on weather) and will be looking for for volunteers.  Depending on how much help it usually takes an hour and half to 2 hours.

 

Additionally we have created a customizable framed 15x18 piece honoring nurses.  If you know a nurse and would like to purchase one of these for them, these normally sell for $60-$70.  We are offering them now for $30 which is the same cost as a flag. 

 

 

Let me know if you have more questions or suggestions and thank you for your help in spreading the word about this event.

HUNDREDS OF AMERICAN FLAGS TO STAND IN HONOR OF OUR HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONALS TO HONOR THEM ON FIRST RESPONDERS DAY MAY 25,2020

 

Frank Lewis, owner of Walter & Lewis Funeral and Cremation Services announced today that they will host the 2nd annual First Responders Appreciation Honor Field.  This year the field will honor our healthcare professionals and be the field be set up on the lawn at Mercy Hospital.  “We wanted to take this opportunity to let our local healthcare professionals know we appreciate them and all they are doing for our community”, says Mr. Lewis.  “This is just a small way for us to show our appreciation and let them know we think they are heroes.”

 

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.
