DOVER — Dover Capital City Rotary Club dedicated 400 flags at its fourth annual Flags for Heroes program on Tuesday.

The Flags for Heroes program is a cooperative effort with Delaware Technical Community College, Terry Campus, Dover, where 400, 3-by-5-foot American flags are displayed on the intersection of Scarborough Road and U.S. 13 between May 23 and 31.

The flags, in conjunction with Memorial Day, will acknowledge all who put their lives on the line for others, including military members, police, EMTs, firefighters and other first responders. It can also include people who have made a difference in a sponsor’s life.

Sponsors pay $50 per flag and designate the person they wish to honor. The list of sponsors and heroes will be published in the Delaware State News in a two-page ad. Proceeds will benefit scholarships, youth programs, and military and civic groups.
