Healing Fields


The Boys and Girls Club @ LCO is organizing a fundraiser called Healing Field: Finding Common Ground | Hayward 2012. Individuals or organizations can purchase a full flag (a U.S. flag or an LCO flag) for $35.00 in memory of a loved one and the flags will be displayed in unity in the field on the corner of Hwy B and K from August 12-September 20. You can read more information about this fundraiser here at the Healing Fields Website.
Here's an official description of the tribute:
The Boys & Girls Club of Lac Courte Oreilles will host the Hayward, Wisconsin – Lac Courte Oreilles Healing Field flag display this summer with a massive display of U.S. Flags and Lac Courte Oreilles Tribal Flags at the corner of Highways B & K. The three-by-five foot flags posted in ordered lines on eight-foot white poles will be an awe-inspiring honorary display to pay tribute to the strength of our community while we continue to find common ground.
In addition to the fundraiser and the display of the flags, there is going to be a ceremony on Thursday, September 20 from 1:00-2:30pm at the site where all the flags are displayed. Members from all over the community plan to be in attendance as display of unity and solidarity.
Please join us and visit this stirring memorial. This is the perfect opportunity for us to come together as a community.

This was such a great ceremony and two communities are beginning to really come together. It was awesome to have pastor Mark speak at it! Thanks Mark! God Bless! Pastor Mark does make a difference in our community... it shows in many different ways- through many different people... there is not enough time to write them all down!
