Healing Feild Coming to Kaneland High School PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 21 March 2014 09:50

healing feild aurora 2013 sm

During the days surrounding Memorial Day, the campus of Kaneland High School will be transformed into a Healing Field® as more than a thousand, three by five foot United States flags, fly from eight foot white flagstaffs on the field just east of the school.

Healing Field flag displays follow the pattern established by the Colonial Flag Foundation where communities all over our nation have honored the veterans and military who have sacrificed their time, talents and even their very lives in defense of our freedom. 

Each sponsored flag has a story and honors a hero who is identified by an attached name tag. 

At the conclusion of the Healing Field® display, sponsored flags are taken home and displayed as a continuing reminder of service to our nation. 

We invite all to be a viable part of this display by sponsoring flags to honor their family members, friends, co-workers, and acquaintances who have given our nation so much; their service deserves to be acknowledged, honored and remembered.

Walk with us among the flags.  Those who have visited a Healing Field® event before know what to expect and they will not be disappointed.  Those visiting their first Healing Field flag display will feel an uplifting and healing experience that must be lived to appreciate.

Alfred L. Larsen PDF Print E-mail

alfred larsen

It is with deep sorrow that I report the passing of Alfred L. Larson.  Alfred has been a member of Post 312 for 55 years.

Alfred’s American Legion record shows that he is a United States Marine veteran who served during World War II.  We honor his service to our country in time of need, his bravery for putting his life in harm’s way and his 55 years of dedication to the American Legion.  During his time at Maple Park Post 312, Alfred volunteered for many Legion community programs.  His time spent with his fellow veterans and friends is greatly appreciated and will not be forgotten.

Although I never had the opportunity to meet Alfred personally, I have heard many stories of him from our members, and they all have been very complimentary.  Alfred was also an American Legion Paid Up For Life Member.
