FLAGS FOR OUR HEROES
Flags For Our Heroes is a celebration of the people who have shaped us and inspired us. Each Memorial Day weekend since 2014, Gaithersburg’s Bohrer Park is transformed into a Field of Honor where 750 8-foot-high American flags are flown to celebrate our heroes. Each flag honors a person who has made a difference in someone’s life
Flags For Our Heroes is organized and presented by the Rotary Club of Montgomery Village and Gaithersburg Rotary Club, with significant support of, and the collaboration with, the City of Gaithersburg, the Mayor and City Council; plus the support of the City of Gaithersburg’s Recreation Department and the Public Information Officer.
The Rotary Club of Montgomery Village and the Gaithersburg Rotary Club would like to extend a special thanks to each of their respective corporate sponsors.

FLAGS FLOWN IN THE FIELD OF HONOR
