MURRIETA – For the fifth consecutive year, the Rotary Club of Murrieta seeks nominations of “heroes” who will be honored during the 2020 Murrieta Field of Honor, Nov. 7-14.

What is a hero? A hero is a person or group who in the face of danger or adversity or from a position of weakness displays courage or self-sacrifice for the greater good. This definition is the general benchmark that the Rotary Club of Murrieta has used in selecting heroes who are nominated by the community.

To nominate a hero, send a picture of the hero, a short biography, a few short sentences on why they should be selected plus contact information including address, email and telephone numbers of the hero and of yourself to MurrietaRotary@gmail.com. Nominations will close Sept. 25.

For 2020, all heroes nominated must be veterans of U.S. military service and residents of Riverside County.

Heroes will be honored with a special salute during the Field of Honor week, along with being featured in a special Field of Honor magazine and in media postings.

Hero selections will be made by a committee of Murrieta Rotary members; all nomination information will become property of the Rotary Club of Murrieta and may be used in promotion of the Field of Honor.

For more information on the heroes program, contact Linda Dozier at MurrietaRotary@gmail.com.
