Honor your veteran! Donation form is below.
The Kiwanis Club of Arlington, Jacksonville Charitable Foundation proudly recognizes military service past and present this Veterans Day, Wednesday, November 11, and invites you to participate. The dedication will take place in the field between the Tire Outlet, 9213 Merrill Road, Jacksonville, FL 32225 and Popeyes Lousiana Kitchen, 9309 Merrill Road, Jacksonville, FL 32225. This is a little to the west of the intersection of Merrill Road and Ft. Caroline Road.
This spectacular display of patriotism will honor and recognize past and present veterans who have dedicated their lives to protecting our freedom. The event is held annually at a field provided by Buck & Buck Realty near the intersection of Merrill Road and Ft. Caroline Road. The picture above is from Memorial Day 2019, when we proudly flew over 50 American flags in their honor. Throughout the event we had many cars honking their horns to show their support, as well as local citizens stopping by to donate.
Arlington Kiwanis has been serving the children in the community since 1956. We are extremely proud to offer this opportunity to honor our military, and continue to change the world, one child and one community at a time. Our members volunteer not only their time, but also their talents because we want to serve our community. We are made up of professors, veterans, business owners, retirees, and young professionals. Our country’s service men and women have sacrificed their lives for our freedom and we host this event to display our gratitude.
We look forward to having you purchase a streamer to honor a veteran or be business sponsor and thank you in advance for showing your support!
