ROBBINSVILLE - HAMILTON, NJ -- The Rotary Club of Robbinsville-Hamilton recently announced the launch of it's first "Flags For Heroes" program aimed at giving local residents the opportunity to honor their personal hero.
Residents and businesses can sponsor an American flag, three-feet by five-feet, that will be placed on the grounds of Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital at Hamilton (RWJUH/Hamilton) along Whitehorse-Hamilton Square Road and Klockner Road between November 1 and 14. The Rotary expects more than 100 flags will be flown during the time before and after Veteran’s Day.
Each American flag will honor someone’s local hero including veterans, active military members, mothers and fathers, grandparent and children, friends and neighbors. Those who have made an outsized impact during the COVID-19 pandemic, including frontline workers, teachers, and clergy, will also be honored.
“We hope this American flag display will help lift the spirits of all those who pass by or visit,” said Tom Damm, President of the Rotary Club. “We hope that when people stop and think about what others have sacrificed for them – their communities, our nation, and the world – it will inspire them to emulate their heroes and make a difference in the lives of others.”
Supporters who sponsor a flag will receive a Keepsake Flag Medallion with their name, message, and sponsor’s name, and acknowledgement on the display banner at RWJUH/Hamilton and on the Rotary’s website.
