Field of Flags

During the Memorial Day Field of Flags weekend, a Memorial Walk with a time of prayer and special music was held each evening at 8:30 p.m.

Prior to the walk beginning, the sounds of the National Anthem could be heard out on the field. Everyone stopped to listen as Liam Burkett stood before the flags and played the song on his saxophone.

Cheers followed and the cry for “more” could be heard from some standing nearby. Following the walk around the Lowe’s YMCA field on Sunday evening, Crystal and Aaron McIntosh performed multiple selections for the crowd. Crystal expressed thanks for the opportunity for them to be there and noted that their songs that evening reflected the quiet, solemn occasion of Memorial Day and what it is all about.
