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 up to 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 held at San Gabriel Park 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. It is FREE to visit the Field of Honor® that is open to all 24/7 throughout the week of the event.
Flags are $45 each. Reposted flags are $20 each. Pick up your flag(s) on November 12 from noon to 5:00 p.m. and November 13 from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., or they can be shipped for a nominal fee.
Remember that repost flags must be in perfect condition to be flown on the field. They must be inspected at the field prior to being posted. A new dedication tag is created with an updated location on the field so it can be easily found.
This year, the 6th Annual Field of Honor® will once again offer the grand OPENING CEREMONIES: A CELEBRATION OF HEROES on November 6, complete with displays of MILITARY TANKS/VEHICLES, FIRE ENGINES, SWAT VEHICLE, K-9 DEMONSTRATIONS, MUSIC, A DEVIL DOG FLYOVER, and MUCH MORE!! The added feature this year is the Tunnel to Towers 9/11 “Never Forget” Mobile Exhibit. Four FDNY firefighters that were eyewitnesses to the tragic events will provide tours of this 1,100 square foot exhibit all week. Don’t miss the exciting escorted arrival on November 5 at 9:30 a.m.! The Quilt of Valor ceremonies, the “Dear Hero Station,” tributes, displays, student field trips, 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.
