Madison Salutes Our Heroes
Madison Salutes Our Heroes in 2022
Presented by the Madison Exchange Club
The Madison Exchange Club will host a commemorative event this September on the Madison Green. This event will be a display of 300 3' x 5' flags. Dedicated flags will be on 8 foot poles and arranged in rows, allowing people to walk amongst them and view the names and dedications of those represented by each flag. The event is a reverent tribute which strives to unite the country in the service of others.
Flags can be purchased to honor:
Victims of 9/11
Child Abuse Prevention
All proceeds from this event will support the ongoing efforts of the Madison Exchange Club to support child abuse prevention, americanism, community service and youth projects. Purchased flags and dedication tags can be picked up after the event with an option to have flag delivered for an extra fee. Flags may also be donated to the Madison Exchange Club who purchases flags to the Town of Madison to fly on the Boston Post Road.
Consider supporting this uniting and patriotic tribute to the strength and service of Americans:
Purchase a flag and dedicate it to an individual or cause, or become a Salutes Our Heroes sponsor at the info table (see hours below). All purchases and sponsorships after August 18 will not be printed on the poster or banner due to a deadline but will be added to the website along with purchases or sponsorships made during the event.
Volunteer to help prepare displays, place flags, staff the viewing kiosk and/or assist at the ceremonies. Please contact us at email@example.com or call 203-350-9244
Donate funds to the Madison Exchange Club to repair and replace downtown flags. Please send a check to The Madison Exchange Club, PO Box 644, Madison, CT 06443.
