2020 Honoring our American Flag
Fellow Legionnaires, Friends, Family
For Your Information:
Mt. Juliet Post 281 will be co-sponsoring our 8th annual “Honoring America’s Flag” event. The event begins on Thursday, May 21st, and ends on Memorial Day May 25th. This is a five-day event. The Mayor and City Commissioners have given us permission now that some of the Coronavirus restrictions have been lifted.
The location is in Mt. Juliet at the Jones Family Park which is located on the northwest corner of the intersection of Mt. Juliet Rd and Old Lebanon Dirt Road, about 2 miles north of Interstate 40. It’s in the center of town. There is plenty of parking.
We install hundreds of flags on a large open field for five days. The event is open to the public and we have always had a great turnout from the community, business leaders, and politicians. At night, we have spotlights that illuminate the flags which creates a beautiful scene. Many people come out to take pictures during the day and at night. If people want to purchase a flag to take home, we place a tag with a yellow ribbon and tie it to a flag. Each tag has the name of the purchaser along with “In Honor Of” or “In Memory Of” and the name of the individual. Usually, it is the name of a veteran but anyone may purchase a flag for any reason. At the end of the event, the purchaser takes the flag home.
This is our eight years that Tyler Cates American Legion Post 281 in Mt. Juliet has co-sponsored this event with the Exchange Club. It is one of the most popular events in Mt. Juliet and surrounding counties. Our post is honored to be able to do this each year.
If anyone has any questions, they can contact me.
