As our country, state, and local community continues to adapt and address the challenges of today, the Monroe Exchange Club has initiated a program that will graphically and dramatically demonstrate our collective respect for those who serve, or who have served in our nation’s military.
The “Flags of Honor” display will include a minimum of 500 US flags to honor our military, and will be located in its entirety adjacent to the River Raisin National Battlefield Park at the corner of North Dixie Highway and East Elm Street in Monroe. With your help, this display could expand to as many as 1,000 flags. The display will take place from November 6th through November 15th. A formal dedication will take place on Monday, November 9th at 9:00 am, with a special ceremony honoring our veterans on Veterans Day, November 11th (Wednesday).
Businesses, and individuals are encouraged to use this opportunity to honor family, friends, and loved ones who serve or who have served in our nation’s military. For as little as $35, you can honor someone by sponsoring a US flag to be included in the display, which will be available to you for pick up on November 16th, along with a certificate of recognition.
Sponsorship levels include:
Flag Sponsorship – $35. Flag and certificate may be picked up at the Battlefield location on November 16th, or mailed to you with an additional $5 fee.
