On my way back from taking my friend Eleanor to the airport yesterday, this field of flags caught my eye and I pulled in to the shopping center where they were (Northridge Commons in Weaverville) to get some pictures. There was a brisk breeze and the sound, motion, and colors were irresistible.
As I was wandering around, a nice lady came to tell me about this display. It's put on by the North Buncombe High School Band Boosters and is a tribute to all military, veterans, law enforcement,first responders, fire and rescue, and EMS.
The display is free and open to all, 9 to 9 daily, till the closing ceremony on May 30 at 2.
There are band performances too: today, Friday May 22, at 6, tomorrow, Saturday May 23, at 2, and on Memorial Day, Monday May 25, at 4. (Folks are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and a picnic.)
The nice lady was delighted when I told her I was going to use the pictures on my blog and I told her I would share the information. There's a link HERE for more about the Field of Honor.
