The Merced Sunrise Rotary Club is flying 1,000 U.S. flags until Veterans Day at Merced College -- and flag sponsorships are still available.
The flags are $35 each and will recognize individuals, veterans, active-duty military personnel and first responders. They can be bought from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily at the Field of Honor, at the entrance of Merced College, Yosemite Avenue and M Street.
Flags also are available at www.mercedfieldofhonor.com.
Veterans Day commemorations begin at 10 a.m. Monday with a closing ceremony at the Field of Honor.
At 11 a.m., Vietnam Veterans of America will hold a Veterans Day ceremony at the memorial at Courthouse Park in Merced. The park is off M Street, between 20th and 21st streets.
At noon in downtown Merced, a ceremony honoring veterans will happen in Bob Hart Square. The annual Merced Veterans Day Parade is scheduled for 1 p.m. The parade route proceeds along West Main Street, between G and O streets. Organizers expect 2,000 to 3,000 people to attend the parade.
