The Rotary motto "Service above Self" says it all when referring to those who have served and continue to serve. Be it Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine, or Coast Guard. Be it Police, Fire or EMT. Our Military and First Responders all stand at the ready when duty calls.
Dedication to service is the driving force behind the Plano Flags of Honor Event hosted by the Plano East Rotary Club. It is held every year during the week surrounding Veterans Day. For seven days in November, 1,000+ 3' x 5' flags fly in honor of those who have served and continue to serve today. It is organized by the Plano East Rotary Club with the support of other local Rotary Clubs, individual Rotarians, local businesses, non-profit organizations and members of the community.
This year's event will be held November 6-13th at Oak Point Park in Plano, Texas.
Special Programs are held throughout the week to recognize our Heroes. Events include programs from Veterans Organizations, Musical Performances, Patriotic re-enactments, Static Displays and more. We invite you to come to the field and share in the experience.
