OCTOBER 2014


SIXTH ANNUAL MURRIETA FIELD OF HONOR IN TOWN SQUARE PARK OFFERS NEW FEATURES


The sixth annual


Murrieta Field of Honor, set in a spec- tacular sight -- 2,014 full-sized American flags --in Murrieta’s Town Square Park, will offer new features from November 9 through 15. The event will focus on recogniz- ing heroes. “Heroes” are those who served or are serving in the United States armed forces, law enforce- ment, fire and other first responder posts, and other personal he- roes.


As the flags are


being placed in per- fect rows in the Park on Saturday, Novem- ber 8, dozens of chalk artists will be creating patriotic works of art on the sidewalks surrounding the park. In addition to the 2,014 American flags, Rotary members and other volunteers will create a section of historic American flags, one for Medal of Honor recipients from California and yet another honoring Local Heroes, those who have died while serving in conflicts since 2001. Area businesses and individuals are invited to join in sponsoring the Field of Honor events and displays. Sponsorships ranging from $500 to $10,000 are available


to help in making the Field of Honor a success. In addition, individuals may purchase


flags and designate them in honor of their heroes to fly among the 2,014 during the week. Opening day ceremonies are scheduled for 1 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 9, a day that


will honor first responders, and a full week of activities will follow, highlighted by a Patriots’ Ball on Saturday, Nov. 15, at the nearby Community Center. Each American flag is three by five feet on an eight foot pole and can be pur-


chased for $35. They can be purchased on the Field of Honor website, www.murri- etafieldofhonor.com, from nonprofit affiliates or by going to the Field of Honor during the week it is on display. Flag purchasers can pick up their flags after the closing ceremonies on Saturday, Nov. 15, and on Sunday, Nov. 16, from 9 a.m. until noon. Net proceeds from the 2014 Field of Honor will benefit the “Murrieta Through


Time” history walk, the City’s Veterans’ Memorial at Town Square Park and other community projects funded by the Rotary Club of Murrieta Foundation. Nonprofit groups affiliated with the Field of Honor to sell flags will receive $10 for each flag sold.
