Mitchell Field
United States

Honor important people in your life and celebrate America. The City of South Milwaukee and the Rotary Club of Mitchell Field are partnering to fly flags in honor of heroes.

Flags for Heroes South Milwaukee is a local tribute to the heroes in our lives – past and present. Over 100 flags will be flown at City Hall during the week of Flag Day with a formal ceremony held at 6 p.m. on Thursday, June 14, as part of South Milwaukee’s Flag Day celebration.

Each sponsored flag will display an Honor Tag listing the donor’s name and personal hero. The tag is given to the donor after the flags are taken down. Individual flag donations are 100% tax deductible.

All proceeds from Flags for Heroes South Milwaukee will be used for local projects by the Rotary Club of Mitchell Field. Since 1958, it has quietly and significantly made the communities it serves better, safer places to live, to work, and to go to school and to raise a family through its service projects, scholarships and contributions to local non-profit organizations.

So think about the heroes in your life. It could be a member of the military, police, fire or other first responders who put their lives on the line for us every day. It could be a teacher, a coach, a mentor, or a community leader. It could be a parent – or anyone who has been a hero in your life.
