The Exchange Club of Mesquite invites you to again be part of an awe-inspiring event as they present the 12th annual One Thousand Flags Over Mesquite tribute to our military and our veterans.
The field of 1000 American flags will be assembled on the west field of the Mesquite Recreation Center on Sunday morning, November 5th, and will stand proudly until November 12th, 24 hours a day, rain or shine. Of course, the field is lighted at night, and volunteers from our community will maintain a watchful vigil at the field every minute of every day.
This year, 2 full rows of flags have been dedicated to those affected by the tragedy in Las Vegas on October 1. There is a flag for each of the 58 who lost their lives, a flag for the over 500 wounded, and a flag for the first responders, medical professionals, and the hundreds of volunteer heroes who helped.
