Event Details

The Westerville Community Center boasts over a dozen activities that draw area residents together. For over a decade each May, the Westerville Sunrise Rotary Club has added an inspiring activity to unite the community in paying tribute to heroes who so often may be taken for granted.

The rolling green lawns of the Westerville Sports Complex normally serve as the site for sports, but during the days leading up to Memorial Day they are transformed into a giant display of 3,500 United States flags, the Westerville Field of Honor® Flag Display. Walking amid the ordered rows of flying flags inspires visitors with a visual and emotional experience that is hard to explain but not to be forgotten.

The panorama of red, white & blue reminds us of the true meaning of Memorial Day as a holiday to remember and honor our military, veterans and all heroes who serve and sacrifice to defend and protect us.

There is no charge to visit this awe-inspiring display; however, those wishing to honor a hero and support the Westerville Field of Heroes may sponsor a posted flag or purchase a flag to be posted and retained by the sponsor at the close of the event. Visit the Field of Heroes website at the link: www.fieldofheroes.org for more information. Proceeds from the flag sponsorship and sales make this flag display possible and benefit the programs of Westerville Sunrise Rotary Foundation.

The Westerville Field of Heroes is a gift to the community made possible through donations, sponsorships and the efforts of many dedicated volunteers. You can show your support and gratitude by sponsoring a flag or making a donation.
