Field of Honor®

Update on the COVID-19 Coronavirus and the Goldsboro Rotary/WCC Field of Honor® (04/08/2020)

Like everyone, we are closely monitoring the progression of the COVID-19 virus as it continues to affect our daily lives.  In the interest of your safety and those whom we hope will visit the Field of Honor®, the Goldsboro Rotary Club, in consultation with Wayne Community College, have decided to postpone the Field of Honor® event until the fall.  While this is not the outcome we intended when we began planning this project, ultimately, it is the right decision to maintain the health and welfare of our community.

 

The tentative new dates for the event are as follows:

  • Opening Ceremony:        Tuesday, September 15, 2020

  • Closing Ceremony:           Tuesday, November 17, 2020

 

These dates are tentative and are dependent upon any future developments with the virus.  If needed, we will postpone again if the virus has not sufficiently subsided by that time.  Regardless, we will keep you updated on the status of the event and will notify you definitively of any developments or changes from this plan.  Your safety is our utmost concern and we do not want to jeopardize your health or the health of the community. 

 

We are grateful for your support and look forward to sharing with you this display of gratitude, honor, and remembrance.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact the club at rotaryclubofgoldsboro@gmail.com.  We will continue to post updates on our Facebook page (@goldsbororotaryclub) and on our website (www.goldsbororotary.org). 

 

Thank you and please stay safe.

Hundreds of United States flags will fly on the lawn of Wayne Community College in A Tribute to Service Above Self, as Goldsboro Rotarians bring their inaugural Field of Honor® flag display to the heart of eastern North Carolina.  This formation honors those who by their lives honor the flag.

 

Flags in the display may be dedicated to show support and honor active-duty military, veterans, first responders, and neighbors in a tangible and visible way.  Identified by special tags, these flags may be sponsored for $40, and the flag with its tag and a commemorative coin will be received by sponsors as a memento of the event.  Proceeds will raise funds to support charitable programs of Rotary International and the Goldsboro Club.

 

The Goldsboro Field of Honor® display is a gift to the community made possible through donations, sponsorships, and the efforts of dedicated volunteers.  Please show your support and gratitude by sponsoring a flag or making a donation.

This is an experience hard to describe, but not to be forgotten.  We invite all to visit the Goldsboro Field of Honor® display and walk with us among the posted flags.  The display is open to all without charge.
