The Corpus Christi Rotary Club launched its fifth annual Flags For Heroes project along Ocean Drive on Saturday morning.
Volunteers from across the coastal bend have shown support to military personnel, first responders, and health care workers by installing approximately 1,500 American flags.
Each flag sponsored by a member of the community honors a particular veteran, first responder, or healthcare professional.
“Corpus Christi is one of the most patriotic cities in the United States,” said Crystal Mead, former president of the Rotary Club of Corpus Christi. “(Flag) creates a spectacular display along Ocean Drive. It’s a tremendous event.”
Many local organizations, including Boy Scouts of America, Islander Women’s Golf Team, and members of Miller High School ROTC, are now flagging 3 feet x 5 feet.
“This is deliberately done during the week of Veterans Day,” Mead said. “Many of these flags are for veterans and we love to honor their service.”
The flag will be on display along Ocean Drive from Dodd Ridge Park to Cole Park until November 14.
The dedication ceremony will take place on Monday, November 8th at 5 pm at the First Baptist Church Chapel.
The Rotary Club will host a “Horn for Heroes” drive-by event along all routes from 5 pm to 6 pm on November 11th, Veterans Day.
