Flags for Heroes

Sponsored by St. Peter’s Episcopal Church

Who Is Your Hero?

St. Peter’s invites you to consider sponsoring a Flag once during the year in Honor of a Hero or Heroes – past or present – who have made a positive impact on your life or on the world. This can be a veteran, military, first responder, medical personnel, teacher, mentor, family member, or friend.

Flags are 3 x 5 feet, will be mounted on a ten-foot pole, and will be displayed May 27 to June 2, 2021, (weather permitting) on the south front section of historic St. Peter’s Cemetery on North Main Street, Smyrna; across from the George C. Wright Jr. Memorial Park.

Sponsorship is $50 per flag. Each flag has a medallion with the name of the Honoree and the Sponsor. A list of Honorees and their Sponsors will be published on our website and Facebook.

If interested in sponsorship, please contact St. Peter’s Office by e-mail: [email protected] or phone 302-653-9691 with any questions. You can also print the sponsorship form, complete it, and send the bottom section with your payment to St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, 22 N. Union Street, Smyrna, DE  19977. To pay online, go to https://onrealm.org/StPetersSmyrna/Give. For the FUND, scroll down to select FLAGS and enter the name of your Hero in the Memo Line.

$50 sponsorship is tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.

Proceeds are used to pay maintenance expenses for our historic cemetery that are not covered by our current endowment earnings and to increase our cemetery perpetual care endowment to meet today’s cemetery care expenses and future expectations. Building up our cemetery perpetual care endowment will enable this historic cemetery to become financially self-supporting helping us to continue providing ongoing beauty and respect to all those entrusted into our care; each of whom was a hero in their day to those who knew and loved them.
