The Rotary Club of Montgomery/Rocky Hill wishes to thank all of those who supported the 2020 Flags for Heroes project! 

We heard from so many people that the flag display lifted their spirits and gave them an opportunity to reflect on what others have done for them, our community, our nation, and the world. We hope it will inspire everyone to make a positive impact on the lives of others.


The 2020 Flags for Heroes project raised over $23,000. Those funds will be used by Rotary to help those in need, focusing on issues of addiction, education, hunger, and homelessness. 

In recent months, Rotary purchased N95 masks for Montgomery EMS, supplied the Montgomery Food Pantry with ShopRite gift cards for families in need, conceived/operated the successful Grab ’n Go project providing over 3,400 lunches to Covid-19 hospital workers while supporting local food establishments whose business was badly impacted by the pandemic.

We hope that the Flags for Heroes inspired others to have a positive impact on the lives of others, while, at the same time, honoring the heroes that are all around us every day.

PROJECT HISTORY: The Flags for Heroes project began in 2018 with 250 full-size flags displayed in front of Montgomery High School. Each flag was sponsored in honor of someone's hero. A medallion was hung from each flag with the honoree's name, why they were being honored, and the sponsor's name. The funds raised that year went to Canine Warrior Project who have veterans training support dogs for other veterans. In December 2019, the flags were displayed in front of the Montgomery Upper Middle School (without sponsorships) to honor the gold star parents and veterans who traveled with the Wreaths Across America Project that visited the school.
