February 6 to 15, 2023
"SERVICE ABOVE SELF" is the Rotary motto and is why the Rotary of Palm Beach celebrates the heroes that have served us. Please join us in honoring the heroes in your life with a symbol of freedom; the American Flag!
This year we would like to especially honor the health care workers, first responders, and others that served both our life-saving and daily essential needs during this coronavirus season.
Each American flag will represent our gratitude for a country of hope and a community that supports one another. Honor your hero with a business or personal sponsorship or with one or more individual 3' x 5' American Flags beautifully displayed with your tax-deductible donation.
Individuals in all areas of our lives deserve recognition. Heroes may include anyone that has impacted your life, your community, or your country: a veteran, family member, or the cashier at your grocery store.
A hero can be someone you admire or would like to say "thank you."
Purchase one or many American Flags to honor a group of individuals, companies, or hospitals if you do not have a specific person in mind.
This year, 2023, the Rotary of Palm Beach Flags For Heroes project, as in 2019, will award scholarships to the dependents of Town of Palm Beach general employees.
