Deerfield Township Lights Up the Fourth of July
Deerfield Honors Veterans Committee Holds Flag Raising at Veterans Park
June 27, 2007 – Raising the flag on the Fourth of July is always a poignant event, but this year it is particularly significant for the Deerfield Honors Veterans Committee. The group will hold a flag raising ceremony at 10 a.m. on July 4, 2007, to mark progress made to the Deerfield Honors Veterans Memorial Park. Keith Maupin, father of soldier Matt Maupin, will attend, as well as members of the Yellow Ribbon Foundation and the national group Let Us Never Forget.
The Deerfield Honors Veterans Committee was recently able to add lights to the flagpole, which will allow the flag to fly continuously, and in a few weeks the concrete slab around the flagpole will be in place. Committee members are also working to add a monument with paver stones for tri-state fallen heroes of the Iraqi and Afghanistan war. The next phase of construction at the Veterans Park will include a bell tower.
Deerfield Honors Veterans Committee still needs donations and encourages everyone to be a part of this lasting tribute to our heroes. Please mail a check, payable to Deerfield Honors Veterans, Inc., to 7818 Woodside Court; Maineville, Ohio 45039. See the plan for the park and purchase pavers online at www.deerfieldhonorsveterans.org.
