Honor your hero with a 2014 flag
Honor Your Hero, Sponsor A Flag.
Murrieta Rotary’s awe-inspiring, emotion-filled patriotic event, the 2014
Field of Honor returns this fall for the fifth time, the tribute flying November 9–16.
More than 2,014 flags will be posted to “honor our heroes” — veterans, past and present, emergency services providers and others important in our lives.
Flags can be sponsored for $35 each and will bear a yellow ribbon with the name of your honoree. At the end of the week-long display, the flags, poles and ribbons can be claimed by their sponsors.
Online orders can be placed starting in July.
Flags from past Fields of Honor can be reposted if in good condition. Bring them to the Field with pole and ribbon during open hours. Fee is $10.
Motorcycle Ride Honors Our Heroes
A new event kicks off this year’s Murrieta Field of Honor, a roaring motorcycle run November 9 that departs from Temecula, wends its way to the coast and through Camp Pendleton before ending up at Town Square Park for opening ceremonies at the Field at 1 p.m.
Quaid Harley Davidson in Temecula is the 10 a.m. starting point for the ride, which offers the unique opportunity to pass through the Marines’ Camp Pendleton.
The event opens the Field of Honor that runs from November 9-16.
A $50 registration fee includes a flag on the Field dedicated to a hero of the rider’s choosing, which can be claimed at week’s end by the rider.
Each rider also receives a commemorative t-shirt and entry into the ride.
Plaease register by November 7. Register now!

Artists to create patriotic images with chalk
Murrieta Rotary seeks artists from the region to paint patriotic images with chalk at the club’s sixth annual Field of Honor scheduled for November 9-16 at Town Square Park.
Patriots Chalk Walk was added to the Field of Honor two years ago and has grown to feature 20 major artists plus kids. The images are painted on a wide sidewalk that rings the display of more than 2,000 flags put up in perfect rows and columns.
The chalk artists are scheduled to paint on November 8 in the afternoon and most of the day on the 9th. The public is invited to watch these talents at work.
There is no entry fee for artists, and modest prizes are offered.
Artists can choose spaces six feet high in widths of four, six or 10 feet. This event is open to all with the ability to draw. A special section will be set aside for young painters.
Chalk suitable for this kind of painting will be provided.
Applications are being accepted through October 28 and must include a sketch of the art planned or a description of what is planned.
Information and application materials are available on the club’s website.
