Veterans Field of Honor

A truly emotional and patriotic event, the Veterans Field of Honor, will be held over the Veterans Day weekend at Seneca Lake State Park near Geneva.

Organizers plan to erect a field of 2,000 United States flags at Seneca Lake State Park to honor our veterans. Area residents will be encouraged to sponsor flags in honor of veterans; these flags will fly from Friday, Nov. 9 through Monday, Nov. 12, with a special service of honor on Monday the 12th.

Students, faculty and staff are invited to help distribute posters and brochures, create the field of flags on Thursday, Nov. 8; serve as security, as the area will be open 24 hours each day; help escort visitors through the field to find specific flags; read names each day; staff the information booth, including processing flag orders and mapping the flags; maintaining the appearance of the field, including straightening the flags and removing debris; and taking the field down and distributing the flags on Tuesday the 13.

Those willing to help should e-mail Ave Bauder at
