Inscription.  
In recognition of her 16 years of dedicated service to the citizens of Grove City, Ohio, as a four-time elected member of City Council, and as Council President from 2002 to 2004.

In 1961, following the Bay of Pigs invasion, Klemack-McGraw fled post-revolutionary Cuba alone as a 13-year-old refugee and immigrant. "I am so thankful for the sacrifice my parents made for sending me here. I hope to share their courage every day of my life," Klemack-McGraw.

This flag is dedicated to Maria Cadiz Klemack-McGraw in honor of her personal sacrifice to become an American citizen and her deep passion of service to the Grove City community.
