Flags fly for heroes in Gaithersburg

Gaithersburg / Montgomery Village / Germantown / Poolesville

TALK OF THE TOWN
Throughout Memorial Day weekend, 750 American flags will soar on the hill at Bohrer Park, each representing a hero. “Flags for our Heroes” was first organized by the Montgomery Village Rotary Club for Memorial Day in 2014. According to past-president and current member, Rick Carder, this year the Montgomery Village club reached out to the Gaithersburg Rotary Club to expand the project and include their neighbors in the display. “Flags for our Heroes” is a community event in which individuals were given the opportunity to sponsor a flag for $50 in honor of someone they believe is a hero. Different levels of corporate sponsorship were also available. The honoree could be anyone from a member of the armed forces to a teacher, coach or mentor.
