Honor your hero TODAY!
The Ohio County Virtual Lions Club believes it is important to honor your heroes, especially those of country, community, and family. Flags for Heroes is a fundraising event that provides an amazing display of American Flags. More importantly though, we celebrate heroes: military, first responder, mentors, community leaders, or other heroes (past or present). We place a flag in their honor based on donations from members of the community, businesses, and non-profits. For only a $50 donation, a flag will fly for your hero on and around Memorial Day, Independence Day, September 11th , and again on Veterans Day. Flags will be on display in Oglebay Park. Additionally, each flag will have a personalized, commemorative tag with the honoree’s name, which will hang on the flagpole. At the conclusion, we will mail your commemorative tag to you.
New for 2021: The Flags for Heroes Virtual Tour
Take the family around and check out all the flags. Scan your smartphone over the barcode reader, and you’ll be taken to a biography about the hero or a description of why they are being honored! It’s able to be shared with others in your family, and we hope it will be a great way to engage kids to learn about history and those who we honor with our sponsorship of a flag!
