One characteristic that makes the Murrieta Field of Honor® successful year after year is that the Rotary Club’s goal is to add something each year.  With COVID-19, 2020 has added unwelcome restrictions that challenge Rotary and the City of Murrieta.  The something new this year will be delivering an impressive display following pandemic measures.   Murrieta’s host committee is up the challenge.  While being breathtaking as always, the display will allow for appropriate social distances and following all COVID-19 safety procedures.

If there was ever a year that area residents need the positive message of unity and hope, it is now.  The display reminds us of our shared history, values and aspirations, and the massive formation of Red, White & Blue offers certain hope that we will successfully overcome this pandemic.

A retired U.S. Marine Corps sergeant observed that after wars and national calamities the flags have come out.  “Now,” he said, “it is time for the flags to come out again.”  The Stars & Stripes inspires us to

The 12th Anniversary Field of Honor provides the Murrieta community with the opportunity to be part of this magnificent local tradition. The event is a gift to the community made possible through donations and sponsorships. Please show your support and gratitude by sponsoring a flag or making a donation. Each flag tells a story and expresses gratitude by honoring a hero.
