Annual Memorial Day tribute at Charlestown

Annual Memorial Day tribute at Charlestown

More than 1,000 flags honoring the country's veterans will again fill a field on the Maiden Choice Lane campus of this weekend as part of the annual Charlestown Field of Honor.

This is the third year Charlestown and the Hubbard Funeral Home have joined together to host the Field of Honor event.

The event, now in its third year at the senior living community in honor of Memorial Day, will feature the same field full of flags as well as a fireworks display that celebration attendees are accustomed to seeing.

Community members will be invited this year to participate in a 5K and 1-mile walk at 7 p.m....
