Memorial Day Flag Display Honors Heroes at Gaithersburg’s Bohrer Park

750 flags will fly at Bohrer Park to honor community heroes on Memorial Day weekend in the annual Flags for Our Heroes event.

This is the ninth year for the “Flags for our Heroes” exhibit of eight-foot tall American flags. The exhibit is organized and presented by the Rotary Clubs of Montgomery Village, Gaithersburg, and Historic Emory Grove.

Residents and businesses are invited to honor their personal heroes by sponsoring a flag. Each flag honors a person who has made a difference in someone’s life.

This is an opportunity to honor a personal hero, a loved one, a friend, or someone who is serving or has served in the military.

The Opening Celebration will take place Saturday, May 28 at 11 a.m., and the Flag Retirement Ceremony will take place Sunday, May 29 at 6 p.m.
