Thank You to our corporate sponsors for a wonderful 2023 Flags for Heroes Event!

 

 

 

Who is Your Hero?
Heroes don’t have to wear a cape. Some wear a uniform; some wear scrubs and others have done something to make a difference in your life such as a coach or teacher. Some have performed service to our community or the world. Honor our present heroes and past fallen heroes. Please join us as we honor them with a field of flags waving proudly to honor every hero! 



Reserve Today!
Honor your hero by sponsoring to fly a flag with a $50.00 contribution. Each of the 300 flags on display during Memorial Day Weekend at the King Farm Homestead along Rockville Pike will be identified with a commemorative tag attached to show the name of the individual it is in honor/memory of during the event. Tags will be given to the sponsors following the event. Flags remain property of the Rockville Rotary Foundation, Inc.
