New Veterans Memorial Flag Project Breaks Ground in North Woburn

The Friends of Woburn Veterans have begun work on an exciting new Memorial Flag project in North Woburn at Ferullo Field.

The Memorial Flag project, funded in part by a grant from the Cummings Foundation, will feature seven flagpoles—one, 60-foot American flagpole and six, 50-foot flagpoles representing MIA/POW, U.S. Army, U.S. Air Force, U.S. Navy, U.S. Marines, and U.S. Coast Guard.

The memorial of flags will be illuminated in light and enveloped by a beautiful walkway made of stone.

As part of the project, several trees, some determined to be diseased, were removed following a public hearing process.  They will all be replaced by new trees planted at the site along Main Street.  The Friends will also upgrade the existing Ferullo monument located there, and move it closer to the flag memorial.

Work is expected to be completed in time for the Friends to dedicate the flag memorial back to the City by Veterans Day 2019.
