For the second year, Hearts for Children, co-created by Heather Holden and Michael Crowley, planted Honor Flags in front of the Calvin Jones House on North Main Street. In place for a few weeks, they came down just before the storm on June 17. The flags — 100 last year and 200 this year — planted in honor of veterans, active service members, firefighters, first responders or teachers — are a way to honor anyone's idea of a hero. For $50, a small plaque is placed on the flag naming the person of honor. This effort is raising money for Heart for Children, which will work to provide hunger relief to children in the Wake Forest area. Learn more at www.hearts4children.org.
