Flags For Heroes


See flier below for more information of this year’s event. Click the flier to be taken to our current application.

In 2020, Souther Sussex Rotary raised 200 flags and almost $10,000 in honor of our veterans, current service members, local first responders and front line workers who put their lives on the line to protect us and our freedom. We honored health care workers, pharmacy, grocery stores, teachers, truckers and even delivery services who helped to protect us while facing Covid-19. Proceeds were donated to the Delaware National Guard to honor Rotarian Ferdinand Comolli, Easter Seals Camp Fairlee, Rotary’s “End Polio Now” campaign, the Harry K. Foundation and many food insecurity programs. This year we will return to our Memorial Day Flag event and because it is the 20th anniversary in 2021. The roles of our recognized Heroes will be read on Saturday May 29th at 1pm. Become a part of the community event by supporting and sharing who is your Hero with a flag in their honor.
