Memorial Day Weekend, May 22 – 25, 2020
Cornerstone Park, 600 W. Wigwam Pkwy, Henderson, NV
On Memorial Day weekend 2020, the Rotary Club of Green Valley in conjunction with the City of Henderson and the USO® will host our Third 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 25, 2020, promises to once again be inspirational and moving.
The Field of Honor® 2020 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.
