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 approach our Eighth Annual Flags for Heroes Memorial Day weekend in 2019, we ask ourselves who is my hero? Perhaps it’s a veteran of the US Armed Forces or a first responder or one of the many organizations that provide services to local veterans in need like shelter and mental health support.
Flags for Heroes is a project of the Easton Rotary's Youth and Community Fund, a 501 c3 non-profit organization.
