Flag sponsorships are now available for the Rotary Club of Robbinsville Hamilton’s popular Flags for Heroes display at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital Hamilton.

Residents and businesses can honor their personal heroes by sponsoring a 3’x5’ American flag to be flown from November 1-18, 2022 on the hospital grounds along White Horse-Hamilton Square Road and Klockner Road. Flag sponsorships, starting at $60 for individuals and $300 for businesses, can be purchased from the Rotary Club’s website, www.RHRotary.org.  The deadline for sponsorships is October 20.

Each donor will receive a digital certificate, a keepsake flag medallion with their name, message, and hero’s name, and acknowledgement on the display banner at RWJUH/Hamilton and on the Rotary Club’s website.

Net proceeds from Flags for Heroes will be donated to non-profit organizations in Mercer County, including the Mercer County Military Action Council, which will help finance an active U.S. military member’s return to their family during military leave. The third annual Flags for Heroes display will fill the prominent hospital field with an expected 300 flags honoring family members, teachers, veterans, active military, first responders and others who have made a mark in a person’s life. A Community Field Dedication and Veterans Day ceremony will be held on the grounds on Saturday, November 5 from 11 a.m. to noon.

“This year’s Flags for Heroes event is especially important because our Club is celebrating its 30th anniversary of service to the community,” Kalpana Patel, president of the Rotary Club of Robbinsville Hamilton, said.  “We hope this patriotic flag display will help inspire those who pass by or visit.”

“We are inviting local individuals and businesses to sponsor an American flag so that we may continue our efforts to assist those in need,” Bill Coleman, chairperson of the Rotary Club’s Flag For Heroes committee, added. “This is a great opportunity for people to honor their hero and to make everyone aware in a moving display.”

“We are excited for Jessica and we look forward to hearing about her success in this critical area of study,” said Rotary Club President Kalpana Patel. “Rotary does important work to support our local communities, but this is a fine example of our worldwide focus as well.”

The Global Scholar program offers study in a foreign university in one of Rotary’s seven Areas of Focus - this one, the environment.

Jessica will divide her studies between Peking University in China for the first year and the London School of Economics and Political Science for the second year. Her studies are expected to impart a comprehensive, cross-cultural understanding of the political, scientific and economic dimensions of climate change.

In a "thank you" video, Jessica said, “My studies over the next two years will afford me the experience, skills and perspective to become an effective change-maker for complex multi-lateral problem-solving in the realms of climate change and human development.”

Ms. Nicol received her undergraduate degree from TCNJ in International Studies, specializing in Global Health, Development and Environment.
