WHAT IS THE FIELD OF HONOR®?
The Field of Honor® is a dramatic, emotion-filled display of full-size, 3′ x 5′ US flags, each purchased in honor of a veteran, active or reserve duty military individual or first responder. In its THIRD year, the Rotary Club of Georgetown’s signature event will present 1500 flags that will take your breath away. This tribute exemplifies the Rotary motto of “Service Above Self” as it inspires patriotism, gratitude for those who keep us safe, and appreciation for our freedom and our country’s flag. The exciting events held throughout the week are open to the public beginning November 9th through November 17th! Details on the events will be coming soon.
Hosted by the Rotary Club of Georgetown, TX, the Field of Honor® is a Central Texas event that is exclusively licensed through the Colonial Flag Foundation. www.healingfield.org

The proceeds from the Field of Honor® benefit veteran and first responder organizations through flag purchases, donations, sponsorships, and on-site purchases during the event. The Rotary Club of Georgetown Foundation is a 501c3 organization. Some of the net proceeds also help support the many Rotary Club of Georgetown projects that serve our community, such as ramp builds, scholarships, leadership and character development programs for kids, and literacy efforts.
Past Beneficiaries included:
VFW Post 8587 to support their extensive work with veterans.
R.O.C.K. (Ride on Center for Kids) – Funding was provided for 15 children of veterans to attend this years’ Camp Courage, an equestrian camp to help overcome issues related to family military life.
TADSAW (Train a Dog, Save a Warrior) – Funding was provided to help train service dogs for veterans with PTSD and other needs.
GEORGETOWN POLICE DEPARTMENT AND GEORGETOWN FIRE DEPARTMENT – Funding has been provided to purchase upgraded ballistic vests for officers and firefighters.
Pick up flag(s) you purchase on the last day of the event. Any flag or flags not picked up by the end of the day become the property of the Rotary Club of Georgetown for resale the following year.
Re-post your flag(s) from last year! For a donation of $20 per flag you can take the prior year’s flag(s) to be re-posted in honor of your hero(es)! The flag(s) must be in perfect condition to be accepted and flown again on the Field. Re-posts will begin on Saturday, November 9th from noon to 5:00 p.m. (or when it gets dark).
