Murrieta Rotary Gears up for Field of Honor
The Rotary Club of Murrieta is preparing for the 6th annual Field of Honor being held November 9-15. This ever expanding event is done in partnership with the city of Murrieta. The field was inspired by a desire to honor people with current and past military service, first responders, and one’s own personal heroes. This year, besides first responders day, chalk art painting, Veterans Day parade, candlelight ceremony, and Marine Corps Birthday ceremony, there will be a Patriot’s Ball on November 15.
The Field of Honor is one of Southwest California's most respected, popular, and moving celebrations. Over 2,014 flags measuring three feet by five feet will be displayed in Town Square Park. Visitors to the field number in the many thousands, including approximately 1,700 Murrieta fifth graders on an educational field trip.
This project is supported by flag sales to individuals who wish to honor their heroes, community event sponsors, and Rotarian and community volunteers. For more information go to murrietafieldofhonor.com.
