On June 18, Ipswich-Rowley Rotary Club volunteers planted ‘Flags for Heroes’ on the Rowley Common.  These full size flags on 10 foot poles are dedicated to the exceptional men and women of Rowley who are remembered as personal heroes by friends and family for contributions to their lives, the community, or the world.
The flags will be displayed along Route 1A in Rowley until July 9.
Sponsorships are still available online, or by visiting the Institution for Savings and Bank Gloucester branch offices in Ipswich.  With a donation of $50, you can honor a veteran, teacher, medical professional, mentor, or any person who has made a difference in your life.  
Proceeds from the event will be used by our volunteer-run organization to fund scholarships and service projects in the two towns.
