The Kiwanis Breakfast Club of Seminole is accepting flag sponsorship applications for its 2020 “Field of Honor” in partnership with the City of Seminole. The Field of Honor which began with 24 flags in 2015 is now in its sixth year and will honor past and present veterans with a spectacular patriotic display of 425 American flags! The flags will be displayed the entire month of November in front of Seminole City Hall and adjacent post office, and can be visited at any hour day or night.

Volunteers are needed to help install the flags and remove the display. The flags will be erected on Sunday, November 1st beginning at 9 AM and removed at 1 PM on December 1st.

Individuals, businesses and organizations can sponsor a single or multiple 3’x 5’ American flags for $35 each. Flags are mounted on an 8 foot steel staff and placed in precision rows. Each sponsored flag will have a colored military-style streamer attached printed with the name of the veteran being honored, years served, military service logo and the Kiwanis logo. The color of this year’s streamers will be gold in recognition of the city of Seminole’s 50th anniversary.

After the conclusion of the display on December 1st, each flag sponsor may pick up from December 3rd – 17th at Extreme Signage their customized streamer(s) to keep in memory of the veteran(s) they’ve honored. Streamers not picked up will be stored until next year’s event. If you have your prior year streamer(s) and would like it displayed with this year’s sponsored flag and new streamer then please arrange to drop them off at Extreme Signage at 10525 Park Blvd #110, Seminole (next to the car wash) before October 15th.  

Flags may be sponsored via credit/debit card or by check by visiting the Kiwanis Club’s web site at: http://www.kiwanisseminolebreakfast.com. For sponsorships via cash payment, please contact Kiwanis Club members Leah Hoffman at (727) 873-7852 or Wayne McKenney at (813) 767-4682. Sponsorship applications are available at Seminole’s city hall, recreation center and library. After a flag sponsorship is purchased, your name and the name of the veteran being honored will be included in a scrolling banner on the Kiwanis club’s web site until July 2021.

The last day to sponsor a flag for the 2020 Field of Honor is October 20th.  It’s important to act now to reserve a flag! Demand has exceeded supply every year and all flags have been quickly sponsored. You won’t want to miss being a part of this outstanding display of patriotism.
