Partnership with the Jackson Township  Rotary Field of Heroes

Over Memorial Day Weekend, 2017, The Rotary Club of Jackson Township is seeking your support and collaboration to sponsor a spectacular visual display of 1,500 American Flags which will be displayed across from Jackson Township Safety Center on Wales Road. These 3' x 5' flags will stand 8 feet tall in perfect rows and columns across a field of green. The Field of Honor / Field of Heroes is an opportunity for our community members to honor their personal heroes who have made an impact on their lives.
The Rotary Club of Jackson Township invites you to join us to show support for your hero. Become a part of this collaborative community event by purchasing a flag that will stand proudly in the Field of Honor / Field of Heroes. After the Memorial weekend the flag is yours to keep, or you can ship the flag to your hero or donate it to a charitable organization supporting active military, veterans, public safety personnel or their families. This is an opportunity for us all to come together as a community to remember, to honor, and to heal.
