Murrieta Rotary Seeks Hero Nominations From Community

Murrieta Rotary Seeks Hero Nominations From Community

For the fifth consecutive year, the Rotary Club of Murrieta is inviting nominations of “heroes” who will be honored during the 2020 Murrieta Field of Honor, November 7 through 14.

What is a Hero? 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. This is the general benchmark that the Rotary Club of Murrieta has used in selecting heroes who are nominated by the community.

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 25, 2020.

For 2020, all heroes nominated must be veterans of United State military service and 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.
