Each Memorial Day weekend, the Westerville Sunrise Rotary Club hosts the Field of Heroes. This event is an opportunity to honor your personal heroes - whoever they are... a family member; a friend; a veteran; a member of the armed services; a favorite teacher; a police officer; a firefighter or any other person who has made in impact on your life.
The Field of Heroes offers a unique and moving way to honor your heroes by flying a flag with a custom tribute in a spectacular display of 3,000 American flags across from the Westerville Community Center. Standing 8 feet tall and measuring 3' x 5', the flags are situated in perfect rows to create an inspirational display that visually represents each individual hero joining together with others to form a community.
Themed programs run throughout the weekend, including opening and closing ceremonies, a flag retirement ceremony and a free Saturday evening concert. The 5K Run/Walk for Heroes is hosted at the Field of Heroes to provide an opportunity to honor heroes in a truly unique and inspiring setting.
Flags can be purchased for $30 each from the Field of Heroes web site, http://fieldofheroes.org or at the Field. Flags flown in the Field of Heroes can be picked up after the event or can be shipped for a small additional fee. Or, if you prefer, you can designate your flag to be donated at the conclusion of the Field of Heroes weekend to a charitable organization supporting active military, veterans, public safety personnel or their families. Flags can also be dedicated and flown in this year’s field, with the flag being returned to the Westerville Sunrise Rotary Club for use in next year’s Field of Heroes.
All are invited to visit the sixth annual Field of Heroes throughout the 2014 Memorial Day weekend to join the Central Ohio community in remembering and honoring our personal heroes.
