Event Description

Finding a unique way to say "thank you" to our family, friends, and neighbors who have served, or are currently serving, in the armed forces is a constant effort. The Commerce Rotary Club would like to provide a venue whereby you can do just that. Beginning this November, the Commerce Rotary Club will begin a new tradition in the Commerce community. A venue will be provided for businesses, families, and individuals to say "thank you" to those who protect our freedom - the Veterans of Hunt County. Held at Commerce City Park, the field will be transformed into a moving tribute to service personnel, living and deceased, domestic and abroad. This powerful installation will be in place from November 9 through November 16, 2019. A field of 100 3' X 5' flags will provide the public the ability to circulate among the flags as they read individual stories of the brave women and men who truly put "Service Above Self" (Rotary's motto) as they provide for our protection. Each Flag will have a placard attached that will tell the story of the veteran. As families visit the memorial site, they can reference a guide map that will indicate where their veteran's flag is located. It will be a moving experience that is both collective and personal.
