A hero can be someone in the military, a first responder or anyone who has been a positive influence in a person’s life, including teachers, parents, mentors, community leaders and others.  

More than 400 3-by-5-foot foot flags will be placed on Del Tech’s Terry Campus in Dover between May 28 and June 2. Flags are $50 each, and corporate sponsorships from $250 to $1,000 are available. Contributions are tax deductible. 

Contact Eric Cheek at echeeknc@gmail.com for information on sponsoring a flag or mail a check to DCCRSC (Dover Capital City Rotary Services Club), C/O 209 Manor Drive, Middletown, DE 19709, with a note naming the hero and the sponsor. Sponsors and heroes will be included in a double-page ad in the Delaware State News on May 27. Sponsorship deadline is May 19. 

Dover Capital City Rotary meets Thursdays for lunch at Dover's Maple Dale County Club with a Zoom option available. For club membership information, contact Stephanie.Adams@nemours.org.
