2023 Rotary Memorial Way
****Flag Sales for 2023 have ENDED.*******
Thank you to everyone that has supported this project in the past and will continue to in the future.
The deadline to purchase flags was Monday, May 22, 2023.
Over Memorial Day weekend the Danville Rotary Club has lined Vermilion Street in Danville, IL with American Flags to honor Memorial Day.
The Club has received hundreds (if not thousands) of compliments about this wonderful project. The flags cost $5 and allow the sponsor to honor someone special to them with an American Flag and card. The card can note a branch of the military and any awards they received (Purple Heart, Silver Star, etc). While most flags honor our military service personnel, anyone can be recognized (and many are).
Proceeds from this event will go to support the Vermilion County War Museum, the VA, and community projects by the Danville Rotary Club. The Danville Rotary Club was founded on November 1, 1915, and has served the Danville Area for over 100 years with the motto, “Service Above Self”. The club meets every Monday at 12:00pm at the historic Fischer Theatre in downtown Danville.
