The Flathead Valley Exchange Club is holding a Field of Honor® from Friday May 27th at 10:30am to Monday May 30th at noon.

The event will be held at Glacier High School, 375 Wolfpack Way, Kalispell, MT 59901.

The event will officially kick off on Friday May 27th, with an opening ceremony from 10:30 to 11:30am on the high school grounds. Marc Racicot, former governor of Montana, will be the guest speaker. The event will include opening and closing prayers, a color guard from Malmstrom AFB, Glacier High School Band's rendition of the National Anthem, the Pledge of Allegiance, an overview of the event, introduction of distinguished guests and sponsors and Racicot's speech. The ceremony will close with a playing of Taps.
 
The Kalispell Field of Honor® will include a display of 1,000 American Flags. Community members can dedicate a flag to a hero of their choice, living or deceased. The fully lit field will be open 24 hours per day until it closes at noon on Monday, Memorial Day.
 
Net proceeds will be provided to four local veteran non-profit organizations: NW Veterans Stand Down & Food Pantry, Veterans Community Response, Vietnam Veterans of America NW Chapter 1087 and Montana Veterans Home Memorial Foundation.

The Field of Honor® and Healing Field® events are held nationwide, and are programs of the Colonial Flag Foundation. The Colonial Flag Foundation established the Healing Field® after September 11th, 2001 as a way to commemorate those we lost. Hundreds of communities across America have since hosted a Healing Field® or Field of Honor® to raise money and awareness for various charitable causes.
 
The Flathead Valley Exchange Club is the local chapter (established in 2020) of the National Exchange Club, established in 1911. There are 630 chapters nationwide, all with the mission to focus on helping community non-profits in the areas of Americanism, Community Service and Youth Programs. The club also has a national project to prevent child abuse. The Flathead Valley Exchange Club provides both volunteer hours and fundraising to help the community become a better place to live.

Kat you have to go to a National Convention they are a blast.  The individual state and club pins are really fun to collect, and a great way to meet people.
