HONORING THE HEROES
 
Marking that one month had passed in the battle against the Coronavirus, the Rotary Club of Beaumont took great pride in honoring and expressing thanks to all who have been front line workers in Jefferson County with two displays of the United States flag. The beautiful displays were seen at the Jefferson County Courthouse, headquarters for the officials managing the response to the crisis, and at the Jefferson County airport, the main testing site.  A team of Rotarians, led by Vernon Pierce, Pat Anderson and Gary Moncla, posted almost 100 flags to honor the workers and volunteers.  The eye-catching displays were beautiful and drew much attention including a television spot on KFDM Channel 6 News.  Watch it below.

"The Rotary Club of Beaumont displays American flags at the Jefferson County Courthouse in honor of heroes -- including first responders, medical workers and essential employees -- on the front lines in the fight against Covid-19

The flags were the idea of Vernon Pierce, who is running unopposed for Jefferson County commissioner Precinct 1.

The Rotary Club put up a total of 95 flags at the courthouse and at the Jacks Brook Regional Airport, where the drive-through coronavirus test site is located."

 
You can still see the television spot on Channel 6.
