WHAT IS THE FIELD OF HONOR®?
Hosted by THE ROTARY CLUB OF GEORGETOWN, TX, the Field of Honor® is a dramatic, emotion-filled display of about 1,600+ full-size, 3′ x 5′ US flags, that honors military (past and present) and first responders. The Rotary Club of Georgetown’s signature event will take your breath away. Each flag is available for purchase and dedication in honor of veterans, active or reserve duty military, first responders, K9 Units, and Equestrian heroes! This dramatic tribute exemplifies the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self” on the part of our heroes. Flags are $45 each. Pick up your flag(s) on November 13 from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., or they can be shipped for a nominal fee.
This year, the 6th Annual Field of Honor® will once again offer the grand OPENING CEREMONIES: A CELEBRATION OF HEROES, complete with displays of MILITARY TANKS/VEHICLES, FIRE ENGINES, SWAT VEHICLE, K-9 DEMONSTRATIONS, MUSIC, A DEVIL DOG FLYOVER, and MUCH MORE!! The Quilt of Valor ceremonies, the “Dear Hero Station,” tributes, displays, and other exciting events will take place throughout the week, and will culminate with a PATRIOTS CELEBRATION BBQ where the Rotary Club of Georgetown’s Patriot Award will be presented. Visit the Events page often to see updated information between now and November.
