The Rotary Club of Corpus Christi has come up with a unique way to honor heroes with an eye-catching display.

From Sept. 8-16, the Rotary Club will be placing flags at Ropes Park and Cole Park along Ocean Drive.

For a $50 contribution, contributors will be able to sponsor a flag. A tag will be placed on your flag with the name of the person you want to honor. Proceeds will benefit the Corpus Christi Rotary Club.

Alan Wilson, president of the Rotary Club of Corpus Christi, endorses the activity.

“It could be a veteran or active military,” he said. “But even beyond that, many of us have heroes in our lives that are like grandparents, or a teacher, or a mentor that helped change the course of our life.”

To sponsor a flag or get more information, contact the Rotary Club at 361-882-8672 or Flags can also be obtained online at
