A community celebration of Flags for Heroes is scheduled for Saturday, November 6, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. on the grounds of Robert Wood Johnson University (RWJU) Hospital at the intersection of Klockner Road and Whitehorse-Hamilton Square Road, Hamilton. The public ceremony will include a short program with guest speakers and community leaders, including Hamilton Mayor Jeff Martin.
Flag sponsorships were purchased by area residents and businesses through the Rotary Club of Robbinsville Hamilton to honor heroes in their lives, including members of the military, COVID-19 essential workers, family members and others. Medallions with heartfelt messages from the sponsors to their heroes are attached to the flags, which are flying on the hospital grounds – a football field long – from Nov. 1-19.
