Murrieta Rotary Seeks Hero Nominations From Community

Murrieta Rotary Seeks Hero Nominations From Community

The Rotary Club of Murrieta invites nominations of “heroes” who will be honored during the 2023 Murrieta Field of Honor, November 4-11.

The Murrieta Field of Honor celebrates its 15th year in 2023. The Field is presented by the Rotary Club of Murrieta in partnership with the New Generation Rotary Club of Temecula Valley and the City of Murrieta. More than 2000 American flags will fly during the weeklong event.

The benchmark that the Rotary Club of Murrieta uses in selecting heroes who are nominated by the community: A hero is a person (or group) who in the face of danger or adversity or from a position of weakness displays courage or self-sacrifice for the greater good.

To nominate a hero, please send a picture of the Hero, a short biography, a few short sentences on why they should be selected plus contact information (address, email and telephone numbers of the hero and of yourself) to Nominations will close September 8, 2023.

For 2023, all heroes nominated must be veterans of United States military service and current residents of Riverside County, California.

Heroes will be honored with a special salute during the Field of Honor week, along with being featured in a special Field of Honor magazine and in media postings.

Hero selections will be made by a committee of Murrieta Rotary members; all nomination information will become property of the Rotary Club of Murrieta and may be used in promotion of the Field of Honor.
