Murrieta Rotary Invites Nominations for ‘Hero’ Honors

The Rotary Club of Murrieta is inviting nominations of “Heroes” who will be honored during the 2018 Murrieta Field of Honor, November 10th through 17th.

What is a Hero? A hero is a person (or group) who in the face of danger or adversity or from a position of weakness displays courage or self-sacrifice for the greater good. To nominate a hero, send a picture of the Hero, a short biography, a few short sentences on why they should be selected plus contact information (address, email and telephone numbers of the hero and of yourself) to Nominations will close September 15th.

Heroes being nominated must be 18 years or older and a resident of Riverside County, California. Heroes will be honored at a special salute to veterans’ luncheon on November 12th and during the Patriots Ball which concludes the Field of Honor on November 17th.

Hero selections will be made by a committee of Murrieta Rotary members; all nomination information will become property of the Rotary Club of Murrieta and may be used in promotion of the Field of Honor.

The Murrieta Field of Honor is celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2018. Founded by the Rotary Club of Murrieta in partnership with the City of Murrieta, the Field of Honor turns Murrieta’s Town Square Park into a sea of unfurled American Flags during the week of Veterans Day each year. This year’s Field will feature 2,018 flags plus special sections of flags recognizing local heroes who have given their life since 2003, historic flags, flags recognizing Medal of Honor recipients from California and state flags. A chalk art section and many programs are planned during the week.
