Memorial Day is approaching and the Danville Rotary Memorial Way project will be lining North Vermilion Street with hundreds of miniature American Flags again this year. Area residents are being invited to sponsor a flag and honor their loved ones. The Rotary Club is selling sponsorships for $5 a flag.
The club will display a card with each flag noting the branch of military service and other information about the person – such as medals they may have received. While most flags honor current or past military personnel, anyone can be recognized.
Proceeds from Rotary Memorial Way support the Vermilion County War Museum, scholarships for local veterans and their families, and community projects of the Danville Rotary Club.
If you would like to sponsor one or more of the flags, visit www.rotaryflag.com and click on the flag at the level you would like to sponsor, or contact the Vermilion County War Museum.
