Muncie, IN—Experience a ‘sea’ of red, white, and blue as more than one thousand American flags adorn Minnetrista’s lawn beside the White River Greenway during Flags of Honor, September 4–11.
Flags of Honor is in partnership with the Exchange Club of Muncie in honor and memory of local veterans, current service personnel, fallen heroes, and all who wish to display their pride for our country. With a gift of $30, friends, families, and organizations will receive a ribbon to place on a flag to display during the designated event dates.
Flags of Honor is an annual event for families and visitors to join together once a year at Minnetrista in a united show of patriotism.
