Flags for Heroes Community Event


What are the Banner and American flags flying on San Marco Road by the Y all about?

The Rotary Club of Marco Island in cooperation with the YMCA is preparing for a major community event to occur in the height of season: February 14 – 19. Hundreds of Flags will be flown on the San Marco site, honoring your Heroes.

The Project called Flags for Heroes recognizes HEROES by flying 5’X3’ American flags on 7 ft masts in HONOR of HEROES. Heroes come in many different walks of life: our Health Workers, Military, First Responders, Police, Firemen, EMS, Pastors, Teachers, Food Suppliers, Volunteers of all sorts, Family Members, Neighbors and Friends… the list is endless, especially today. February 14th is Valentine’s Day—perhaps your sweetheart is your hero. February 15th is President’s Day—a patriotic holiday perfect for flying flags.

Community members have the opportunity to purchase a Flag Sponsorship to honor their hero for only $50. A Medallion flying from each flag will name both the Sponsor and their Hero and will be given to the Sponsor at the conclusion of the event.

This is a limited-time opportunity. The deadline for purchasing flags is December 11th or when the sponsorship opportunities are sold out, whichever occurs first. 100 sold already! So call today by contacting Linda at 239-777-9200, or visit the Rotary website www.marcoislandrotary.org and click on Upcoming Events for a link to the Sponsorship Application form. You can also pick up sponsorship forms at the YMCA’s front desk or Marco Office Supply.

Proceeds from this event will go back to serving our community’s critical needs. Thank you for HONORING OUR HEROES and SUPPORTING THE COMMUNITY.
