Memorial Day WeekendMay 24 – 27, 2019

Cornerstone Park, 600 W. Wigwam Pkwy, Henderson, NV

On Memorial Day weekend 2019, the Rotary Club of Green Valley in conjunction with the City of Henderson and the USO® will host our second annual Field of Honor® throughout Cornerstone Park in Henderson. We will again be honoring our Heroes: veterans, fallen soldiers, active duty military, first responders, and community members who live the Rotary motto: “Service Above Self.” At last year’s, ceremony Mr. Wayne Newton and Henderson Mayor Debra March spoke. This year, we will have multiple programs on stage throughout the weekend featuring local citizens, performers, high school and college musicians.  The main program on Monday, May 27, 2019, promises to once again be inspirational and moving.

The Field of Honor® 2019 will be a breathtaking display of nearly 1000 American Flags recognizing courage, nobility of character, and achievements of those around us. A special area sponsored by the Rotary Club of Green Valley will be dedicated in remembrance of the 58 victims of 1 October.

The story behind this week's ad for our upcoming Field of Honor happening this weekend at Cornerstone Park in Henderson:
"One of the great heroes in my life is my Great Uncle Ernie. When he was a young man, he wanted to join the military just like his three older brothers, but he was too underweight and they wouldn’t let him join. He had my great grandmother feed him extra dinners for a few weeks, and went down to the recruiting office with extra layers of clothes and rocks in his shoes. He was determined to get in, and the look of pride on his face when he was finally able to join the Army was priceless. He fought in the Pacific, and when he came home he became a teacher, helping educate the young children in his rural farming community. To me, Ernie was someone that we in Rotary like to call a Person of Action. He is one of the people that I have chosen to honor at the Rotary Club of Green Valley’s 2nd Annual Field of Honor®."
