In its fourth year, the Rotary Club of Georgetown’s signature event will present over 1,700 flags that will take your breath away. Each flag is available for purchase and dedication in honor of a veteran, active or reserve duty military individual or first responder. This year we will also honor heroes from the COVID-19 Pandemic! This tribute exemplifies the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self” on the part of our heroes. The exciting events held throughout the week at the Field of Honor® are free and are open to the public!
The Mission of the Field of Honor® is to HONOR and BENEFIT Active and Reserve Duty Military, Veterans, 1st Responders, and COVID-19 Heroes, to INSPIRE patriotism and love of our flag and its heritage, to EDUCATE our children that visit during school field trips, and to UNIFY our communities in respectfully honoring our flag, our country, and our military, veterans, 1st responders, and COVID-19 heroes.
The net proceeds from the 2020 Field of Honor® FLAG SALES will directly benefit veteran, first responder, and COVID-19 related non-profit organizations. Beneficiary selection criteria will be established and grant applications will be available here soon.

ADOPT A LOCAL HERO!
Already bought flags for your heroes, or don’t know anyone to dedicate a flag to? You can also “adopt a local hero” by purchasing a flag or several flags for any branch of the military or first responders. The flags and dedication tags will be sent to the respective branch of service leadership following the event to be awarded to deserving heroes. That is truly meaningful to those who serve that did not have a flag personally dedicated to them. ADOPT A LOCAL HERO TODAY!
At the above link, you can also become a sponsor, purchase and dedicate flags in bulk quantities, purchase your Patriots Celebration seats, pay for ad space in the keepsake Field of Honor® program, and more!
