WHO IS YOUR 2021 HERO?

 

You can honor your hero by sponsoring a flag at the Annual Memorial Day Weekend FLAGS FOR HEROS fundraiser.
 
On Tuesday, August 11, 2020, our club with support of Rotary District 7450, presented a $1000 check to The Bridge Food and Clothing Cupboard to help provide additional food relief to residents in our area affected by COVID 19.  For the last several years, the West Grove-Avondale Rotary Club has supported The Bridge by providing and distributing toiletries and diapers as part of their weekly Tuesday evening food, clothing and household goods distribution.  Located in West Grove, Pennsylvania, the Bridge is part of the ministry of the Avon Grove Church of the Nazarene and through the combined efforts of area churches, community organizations and local businesses is able to provide assistance to thirty to fifty families each week.  Pictured in the photo:

List of 2020 Heroes and Sponsors
Thank you to all who sponsored the flags this year.  A special Thank You to all Veterans who gave their lives to secure our freedoms; to all Vets who served in the Armed Forces; to all Nurses, Doctors, and medical teams, to all First Reponders, EMTs, and Essential Workers. We thank you and honor you.

Flags For Heroes

 
Several years ago, as we were putting up flags, a woman pulled over and said she just had to stop because she knew that when there were this many flags, that they were representing real people, real heroes.
 
With the COVID-19 pandemic, we need to support our heroes more than ever.  See the video and find out more ...
