The Rotary Club of Easton’s Flags for Heroes fundraiser is an annual event that provides an amazing visual display of American flags throughout the town of Easton during Memorial Day weekend. Flags are placed at the Talbot County Community Center, Idlewild Park and Black and Decker Field in Easton, Maryland.
When Flags for Heroes began in 2012, the goal was to create a fundraiser that would engage the entire community while reminding us of the true meaning of Memorial Day—a time to remember, celebrate, and recognize the heroes that have served and sacrificed for our freedom.
Thanks to the generosity of our community, our display has grown each year. Just as important, we have been able to provide needed funds to worthy organizations in our area, all of them serving the heroes in our midst. Learn more about the local impact of Flags for Heroes.
As we begin the ninth year of Flags for Heroes, the world, our country, and our community are in the most challenging and uncertain of times, but COVID-19 will not deter The Rotary Club of Easton from its mission. Following all state and federal guidelines, we will make sure that on Memorial Day weekend, 1000 American flags will fly all around Easton to honor the many heroes in our midst fighting this horrific virus and doing all they can to mitigate it and its equally devastating economic and social effects.
We are aware that during these times making donations is difficult, so this year we are asking you to determine what you can contribute. Any amount is much appreciated. We feel now more than ever, we need to raise as much as possible to donate to the heroes in our community who are doing so much to help us during this time.
Flags for Heroes is a project of the Easton Rotary's Youth and Community Fund, a 501 c3 non-profit organization.
