Westerville, OH ~ Field of Honor® 2021

May 28May 31

325 No Cleveland Avenue Westerville, OH

Honoring the service of Minority Service Members

May 28 – 31, 2021
Westerville Sports Complex, 325 N. Cleveland Avenue, Westerville, OH 43081

The Westerville Community Center always provides facilities for classes, meetings and activities benefiting area residents. However, each May the Westerville Sunrise Rotary Club adds an inspiring activity that unites the community by paying tribute to heroes who so often may be taken for granted.

During the days leading up to Memorial Day, the grounds of the Westerville Sports Complex, which normally serve as the site for sports, are transformed into the Westerville Field of Honor® Flag Display featuring 3,500 United States flags flying over its rolling green lawns. 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.  This year we will be honoring the Service of Minority service Members.

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.
