Operation Flags For Heroes officially kicks off on Memorial Day weekend this year. Memorial Day is always a wonderful day to honor our Veterans who have given so much to our country.  And this year, in celebration of hopefully nearing the end of this difficult “Covid” period, it is also time to honor the essential workers including health care personnel, first responders, teachers and grocery and pharmacy employees. We all know someone who is a hero that should be honored.
The Colchester Milton Rotary Club has established a fantastic way to celebrate our heroes - Operation Flags for Heroes.  We will be displaying many flags that community members and businesses have already sponsored over Memorial Day near Dick Mazza’s General Store on West Lakeshore Drive and at Charlebois Truck Parts on Route 7 South in Milton.   Each flag has a plaque designating the honoree along with other important information.  
Please drive by and enjoy this wonderful display around Memorial Day.  The flags will also be displayed over Flag Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, and Veterans Day. Funds raised through this project will be donated to community organizations that support local needs. We hope you would like to join us in honoring a hero. Find out how to sponsor a Hero here.
