It's time to meet the newest members of our Morning Mug Club...brought to you by Holland Farms Bakery and Deli.

"Flags for Heroes" is sponsored by The Good News Center...1,000 8-Foot flags will be posted on Memorial Parkway in Utica in recognition of our local heroes: veterans, active military, first responders and their families.

The flags will be tagged in memory or honor of a loved one and they will be displayed from November 2nd to November 11th. Flags can be sponsored for a loved one for $35. All are invited to walk the field.

On Sunday, November 11th, there will be a closing ceremony at 3:30pm. Jan Scruggs, a United States Army Veteran, will serve as the keynote speaker. There will alost be a luminary after the closing ceremony, weather permitting.

Proceeds will benefit the Sitrin Military Veteran Rehabilitation Program.
