On Saturday, May 16, 2020, the Downtown Hampton Exchange Club presented the Proudly We Hail award plaque to the Hampton Yacht Club. The award was presented by President William Trimble and accepted by HYC Commodore, Leigh Chapman.
No symbol better signifies our nation’s greatness than our American flag—the Stars and Stripes. The Proudly We Hail program encourages regular and proper display of the flag by individuals, commercial establishments and industries. This program promotes Americanism as well as community recognition by the Exchange Club. Moreover, the program benefits both the community and the nation by enhancing and strengthening a national sense of patriotism and pride.
