    The Rotary Club of Murrieta is hosting their "Murrieta Field of Honor" event for the eleventh consecutive year and is encouraging the public to nominate a hero.

    The event which will be hosted from Nov. 9 through 16, is an event that looks to honor those who when facing danger or adversity, display courage or self-sacrifice for the greater good.

    Heros who are selected will be honored at a special salute to veterans luncheon that will be held during the Patriots Ball. This will conclude the Field of Honor event on Nov. 16.

    Since the Murrieta Field of Honor will be celebrating its 11th anniversary this year, it will be transforming Murrieta's Town Square Park into a sea of unfurled American flags. The flags are to recognize local heroes who have given their lives since the year 2003. Other programs are also planned during the week of the celebration.

    People interested in nominating a hero can send a picture of the person they want to nominate with a short biography, a few short sentences on why the person should be selected, plus contact information such as address, email and telephone numbers of both the hero and of the person nominating them. All the information is to be sent to MurrietaRotary@Gmail.com.

    Heroes who are nominated should be 18 years or older and a resident of Riverside County in order to be considered.

    Once nominated, the heroes will be selected by a committee of Murrieta Rotary members.

    Last year the heroes who were honored were Sgt. Arthur "Arty" Allen, U.S. Air Force Colonel Richard H Gibbs and World War II Navy Seaman Alvin David Porges along with The Waves Project.

    Nominations will be closing on Sep. 15, so be sure to get those nominations in to highlight the Riverside County hero in your life.
