Parma Heights Welcomes Ohio Flags Of Honor
This year, the city’s Weekend in the Commons Celebration will bring a deeper meaning to the concept of community with the presentation of the Ohio Flags of Honor, courtesy of the Ohio Flags of Honor Foundation. This memorial display honors the men and women from throughout our state that paid the ultimate price protecting our freedom in the service of our country in Iraq and Afghanistan.
The Opening Ceremony for the display will be held on Friday, August 9th at 7:00 p.m. with the posting of the Flags of Honor. They will remain on display in the Greenbrier Commons in front of the library building until the Closing Ceremony for the display on Sunday, August 11th at 12:00 p.m.
The Flags of Honor features over 550 United States flags, with over 250 of them representing the brave Ohioans that lost their lives. Individual flag poles are inscribed with each service member’s name. Additional information is available at the Ohio Flags of Honor Foundation’s website www.ohioflagsofhonor.org.
I ask all our residents and members of the surrounding communities to join us as we remember and honor our Fallen Heroes.
