A Tribute as solid and lasting as our American ideals.

The Norton VFW Circle of Flags honors our fellow veterans who gave so much in the service of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts and the Nation.

Today, all of us can leave a lasting tribute to a family member or friend who served in the armed forces, recognize a military unit or veterans service organization, or simply just show our support for the Circle of Flags and its mission to honor our veterans, preserve our history, educate our youth and inspire patriotism in all.

Purchase an engraved granite paver with the name of the person or organization you wish to honor or other special message to be placed in the Circle of Flags at the Norton VFW. Proceeds from the brick sales go toward the completion of the Circle of Flags.

**************************************************************************************************************

The Circle of Flags is Norton VFW’s memorial to the United States and its armed services; Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force and Coast Guards and the brave men and women that served.

The idea, of redoing the front of the Post, is the dream of Gary and Debbie Cameron.

“So, Gary, what brought on the need to redo the front of the Post?” “Well Lee, about 5 months ago Debbie and I were at the Fryburg fair and saw the flags for each of the armed services on display. Debbie said that they would make a great “circle of flags”. I bought the flags and that started the whole thing rolling. The men and women, both currently serving and veterans, have given a lot to this country. We need to show our gratitude and respect and this is just one way of doing it.”

“A committee was started consisting of Tom Deluca, Paul Correa, Missy Cunningham, Barbara Pelletier, Holly Instasi, Mary Wright, Don and Dianne Pickener, Martha Kennelly, Lisa Butler and myself. We have been meeting and designing ever since.”

“What kind of support have you gotten from the town?” “Individuals and businesses have shown a tremendous support; Alberto’s, Tavern 33, Selectmen and women, the police and fire unions, the list goes on and on. The support we have gotten has just been overwhelming “

“What fundraisers have you had?” “Wow, the response to the fundraisers has been excellent. Let’s see, there was a Sweetheart Raffle, we also raffled off a snow blower, ran a Las Vegas night. Tavern 33 and Alberto’s have both dedicated a percentage of a night’s receipts and raffles, to the Circle of Flags and the Paver sales look like they will be a sellout.”

“What do you have coming up?” “We are raffling off a riding mower April 24 followed on may 14 with a CornHole Tournament with Pig Roast; $60.00 per team including pig roast or come on over for just the pig roast at $15.00. Then, June 11th we will be doing the car wash again and J.J.’s Car Wash, June 13th is the annual Veteran’s Benefit Golf Tournament, and June 25th is the Super Summer Meat Raffle and $1,000.00 Raffle.”

“Lee, I also want to remind everyone that the paver sales are going strong and will be on sale until August 15th. Stop be the Post and get your paver today.”
