Citizens and visitors to Glendale will experience an amazing display of patriotism with 1,000 U.S. flags flying atop 8‐foot poles in perfect rows at the entrance of Forest Lawn Glendale from May 22nd to May 25th, 2020.
This temporary display will honor veterans, current military personnel, first responders, community leaders or any hero of your choice. The entire community will have an opportunity to participate in setting up the display and to honor their heroes by sponsoring one or more of the flags on display. Proceeds from the event will be directed right back into the community including Veterans Housing.
Glendale Sunrise Rotary is hosting this event. Everyone will be able to walk through the Field of Honor free of charge. Sponsoring a flag to honor one of your heroes will not only support the local community but if you desire, a Flag Sponsor can take home their flags at the end of the event for free.
Along with the pride of being part of such a worthy cause, we hope you will see the value in dedicating a portion of your marketing budget to this unique opportunity.
Thank you for taking the time to consider this event and a cause worth supporting.
From The President of the Rotary Club of Glendale Sunrise
Glendale Sunrise Rotary Club is proud to bring to the Glendale Community our 2019 "Field of Honor and Gratitude" experience. We hope you have enjoyed our dazzling display of patriotism for the past two years. 1000 US flags flying at the beautiful entrance of Forest Lawn is an awesome sight. This year we are adding attractions to increase the "WOW" factor. There will be more to see that will warm your heart, bring back memories, and spark a renewed interest in our great American history. We hope it will be a beautiful reminder to some, and a great appreciation to all who attend, of what an amazing country we call home. And, what a wonderful legacy our ancestors have left for us to continue to make even greater. As the current president of Glendale Sunrise Rotary, I encourage you to become a partner in one of Glendale's most extraordinary events to date.
Peggy Smith, Club President 2018-2019
From the Field of Honor & Gratitude Committee Chair
As we embark on our Third Annual Field of Honor & Gratitude, we recognize the need to expand the program. This year Glendale Sunrise Rotary will host a full week of activities designed to help the young to learn, the older to listen and the elders to share their experiences of what service and sacrifice means to our community. Thank you for supporting this opportunity to honor those who have served, who have fallen, and how they have made a difference in our lives.
Without your participation, none of this would be possible. Your grateful community thanks you.
Keith Sorem, 2019 Committee Chair
