Botanico, Inc. is proud to have been the title sponsor for the inaugural Healing Fields Memorial Day Flag ceremony in McMinnville TN, where our very own Lt Col (Ret) Jon Flanders was the keynote speaker. County Executive Jimmy Haley presented a proclamation and the sister of the late Bobby Ray (who is a Congressional Medal of Honor recipient from McMinnville) also spoke. There were 132 flags on display representing the fallen Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Marines from Warren County who fought and died in our nation’s wars since WWI. Family members were allowed to receive their loved one’s flag after the closing ceremony on Memorial Day.

    I was truly honored to be asked to speak at this solemn event. We even received our great uncle’s flag and a high school classmate of Bob’s flag.
